iPhone 4 on Tmobile?
Glad to be on this forum. There are some really interesting active threads.
I recently ordered a factory unlocked iPhone 4 and am waiting (somewhat) patiently for it to arrive.
I was wondering if anyone out there has activated an unlocked iphone on TMobile. Have you had success?

I've never used a factory unlocked phone. But if you intend on using the iPhone 4 on T-Mobile, keep in mind that the iPhone 4 now uses a Micro Sim (much smaller than T-Mobile's). You may want to look for one of those sim cutter tools too.

I don't know why you make the assumption that just cause a carrier carries the iPhone 4 a customer would choose the locked version. May I offer our own Rene Ritchie as the perfect example? All the Canadian carriers have the iP4, but he got the unlocked model.
Actually, most of my friends in Europe chose to purchase unlocked.

He's pointing out an issue that wont apply to you...something that factory LOCKED phones have to worry about after being hacked into an "unlocked" state.
btw...you will need to do a few settings and things to make facetime work on tmobile, and i think visual voicemail is still a no go.

My husband bought me a factory unlocked iphone4 for Christmas. The phone is a canadian unlocked phone that was used for less than a month. I have Tmobile US. I cut my sim card down and put it in but the phone is still not working. Could it be that I just cut the sim card wrong? Are there any settings in the phone that need to be changed or would I be best off to do a factory reset and start over?
Any advice would be very appreciated! Thanks
