    can someone tell me how to get the sidekick prepaid plan working on my iphone 3g? The phone is not locked right now as I wanted to start from scratch and not mess anything up in the process. I would greatly appreciate any help that someone can give me. Thanks in advance...

    Why are people using sim adapters? I thought the unlocks let you drop your sim in and select your network under the Carrier Selection menu. I have never used a sim adapter before so I am curious.

    yes, now with the ultrasn0w.
    The 3g running with the newest B/B 2.30 then were unable to be unlocked till now. So we had no other choice but use a sim adapter to use on T Mo.

    Ah I see. I thought maybe it had to do with the physical design of other Sims. Thanks for the explanation.

    I always kept my 2.28.00 baseband and have to admit it is weird looking at a new one in my phone :P

    I had the GEVEY Sim card also for my iphone because i accidently updated my phone to 2.2.1. I signed up for the Tmobile Web which is 5.99 and the APN is It can only be used for Tmobile Web only. To what i know, Sidekick Plan cant be used on iphone 3g 2.2.1 because my friend had sidekick LX and changed it to Iphone and kept his plan. It wont work. You either have to sign up Tmobile Web or Smartphones plan.
    This is 100%INCORRECT!!
    You CAN use your TMobile Sidekick (LX) SIM with the Iphone 2G AND 3G with ANY SW ver. I have both 3G and 1st Gen (2g) and have used both with the same SIM out of my Sidekick LX. Only Difference is the APN setting ( instead of
    EDGE/Data works flawless, around 100k on 1st Gen. And a little over 200k on 3g (by way of edge,Cant use tmobile 3g on iphone bc the freq. is different) (DL Speeds)

    It worked... I am now on the T-mobile edge network searching the internet... I appreciate all the help!!!!

    One last thing... does anyone ever get the 'No SIM Installed" message? I don't seem to be getting it as much as I did when I first unlocked the phone but every so often I get the message. Should have my SIM replaced or is this normal?

    About two weeks ago the tmobile sidekick APN (hiptop.t-mobile) was reconfigured,Safari on iPhone won't go thru but emails still work. You will have to change your tmobile plan from sidekick to the smartphone plan. The smartphone plan, cost the same as the sidekick plan w/pay as you go plan.The new APN is wap.voicestream. When you put this APN in with out the smartphn plan it will bring you to an upsell page.
