    I'm having information overload! I want to unlock this darn iphone and abe able to use all the applications like youtube and the web. I posted earlier and was told to download the WIMPWN program. Is this program going to unlock and jailbreak my phone? I looked at the ziphone program too and it looks simple. I'm not a tech person. I just want to enjoy the phone on t-mobile thats all. Please someone advise me. What software do I should I use? Its a 4g iphone running 2.0.1 firmware if that helps. My itunes is version 7.5.

    All the info on these forums gives differeing opinons. Some say dont use the 2.0.1 firmware but thats what came with the phone. I havent done anything to the phone since buying it yesterday nite.

    With 2.0.1, the only tool you can use is winpwn (for PC) and pwnage tool for mac. Follow the steps, its pretty easy. If you are uncertain, let me know and I will direct you to the proper sites for instructions.

    Thanks I used winpwn and it worked fine. Question: will youtube work with a tmobile plan? Right now it works because I am using my home wifi network connection. I havent called T-Mobile to cancel my blackberry plan and switch over to an internet plan.

    Okay thanks. I checked the box in winpwn. Its not working right now with my t-mobile SIM card but I assume thats because I havent called T-mob and had my blackberry plan switched over to an internet plan. It works perfect with wi-fi.

    That sucks. Youtube is one of the main reasons I got an iphone. Oh well at least I get to watch it on wi-fi and in Tmobile Hotzone. Did anyone see Starbucks isnt a T-mo hotzone anymore?

    I cant get on the web with my iphone away from wi-fi. Is it because I havent entered the wap.voicestream thing in the APN settings? How do you do that anyway? Will that affect my wi-fi usage?

    Ive never been able to use the internet2 option only wap.voicestream..... the funny part is my edge only works using guest as the user and password. Everyone else including my wife doesnt have to input guest.

    Nevermind. On my plan (blackberry) I have to enter wap.voicestream.com. It works fine. Just slower than wi-fi but thats to be expected.
