    What about Tracfone?
    I have iphone 2g and have had t-mobile forever, but now I have no income and I qualify for safelink wireless which is a so many minute a month free version of tracfone.
    They give you a free phone and sim with it.
    I'd really like to use it on my iphone.
    I know they lock to the phone that you activate them too, but If I initially register it with my iphone will it work? Will it still recharge the minutes normally?
    The thing to do is get the phone and etc with the sim... and try it with the iPhone... it could also be locked to that phone during packaging...?!?!?!?! I don't know.... I did have a buddy make a whole new carrier bundle for the iphone.... and it handles MMS, TXT, Voice, Data and Tethering... Its on a different forum....

    iPhone 3G with Straight Talk..APN info??

    I think if you take the ZIP file he mentions... unzip it to where its a true .IPCC file... and email it to yourself and use wifi on your iPhone. When you click on the .IPCC file attachment it should install all your settings... Not much time to experiment this morning... will update later today...

    Re: Will Apple Iphone unlocked work with Tracfone/StraightTalk

    I have a First generation jailbroken Iphone. 8gb. and a Samsung SGH-T401G. I originally used the iphone with T-Mobile until my parents decided it would be a good idea to switch to straight talk. I have managed to get the SIM card out of the samsung and put it in the iphone and also installed that mobileconfig app you posted before, It says no service though, i have tried resetting and retrying and I have had no luck whatsoever. Will this not work on my phone because its a 1st gen? or am i missing something here?

    I think i already know the answer to this questions... but I'll ask anyway...

    when you turn your Samsung on... does it display a TRACFONE splash screen or anything??? If so, as far as I know you can't use that sim card... those sims get locked to the phones that are branded.... I don't know all the details but this is what I am finding out...

    as far as i know it will... i posted a link earlier in the forum like a day or two ago that has a full carrier bundle to handle text, voice, data, mms and tethering... so you should just be able to install the file and boom it work

    Do you have the $30 plan or the $45 plan that can be the difference why.. just like in the nokia e71 you need the $45 unlimited plan in order to work...i was reading some other thread and someone said they also tried it with a sim not of the nokia e71 and in the ipod settings they were able to see there number but had no service im guessing they had the $30 plan u should give it a shot..

    The E71 requires the $45 Unlimited plan... Using an iPhone without an unlimited plan is silly anyway... I use TONS of data...
