I... may have just bought a pair of unlocked+jailbroken 2g iPhones with firmware 3.0 on them on ebay so we can use them on t-mobile.
I can't tell you how excited that makes my not-so-inner geek.

why: we like tmobile, don't want to sign a new 2-year contract with AT&T (iphone 3gs) or Sprint (palm pre), and the price on used 2g iphones just dropped drastically when the 3gs hit. We can probably sell them for close to what I just paid (if not more than, got a good deal) in a couple months if we think it's not working out, but likely we'll hang onto them until either the iphone breaks it's exclusivity with AT&T or a really compelling piece of Android hardware hits the market. So far Android phones have suh-uked. (Two syllables, they suck that bad. no offense to those of you who have them, but no headphone jack? fr srs?)

... unlocked iphones work on Tmobile, just no 3G data speeds. ^_^
The unlocking process can be a touch arcane, and it was no more expensive to buy unlocked ones than standard ones, so I just let someone else do the work. heh.

Yay!

Being able to ssh from a telephone has not lost its amazing ridiculousness for me.

I think all carriers suck in roughly equal measures. I want an Android, as a geek, but... SHINEY!

I really do want an iphone... but I really can't stand at&t...
it's either that or the Pre... I <3 palm
but it's the same thing... hated sprint when I had it, and have yet to have problems with Verizon...
