    As far as I know and from what I heard... the E71 is the only phone that will work... my significant other has a phone that is "branded" for tracphone on the ST network... I popped that sim into my E71 and it gives an "invalid sim" error. So from my testing and from what I've read... the E71 is the only sim that will work in the iphone... I jailbroke my iPhone and used an app that lets you edit your carrier info... I put in all the correct MMS settings but it kept changing them back to default... there are many online resources that you can use depending on your phone's OS version that lets you build custom carrier bundles.... i'm running 4.1 and all the generators I've came across are for the 3.x OS versions... plus it asks for all kinds of info i'm not sure of.... i'll continue to dig and research this topic and keep everyone updated.

    UPDATE

    I have the MMS working on my iphone now...

    You will need to go into cydia and search for "SUPREME PREFERENCES"

    Open winterboard and enable supreme pref. and respring

    Goto settings>supreme preferences>applications>phone and enable "Cellular Data Editing" back out to main settings page and click on general>network>cellular data

    You will need to input these settings for mms

    APN: att.mvno
    proxy: proxy.mvno.tracfone.com:80
    mmsc: http://mmsc.cingular.com

    and that should do it...

    i did a test... i sent a pic from my work email to my iphone and then sent a pic to my work email... so far no errors or etc

    as far as i know its a CDMA phone. About the only thing you can do with that phone is "unlock" it to use on like the verizon network.

    Revbig: Think of Cydia as the App Store for jailbroken iPhones. You can get all kinds of things for the iPhone. Wallpapers, themes, ringtones, cool apps and MUCH MUCH more.

    Supreme Preferences requires some work. Your phone has to be jailbroke... you'll need winterboard from Cydia... then Supreme Preferences from Cydia. You'll then need to open winterboard to enable supreme preferences. After all the previous, you will need to "respring" the phone. Respringing is like rebooting the GUI and etc. Not exactly sure what all takes place during that process...


    So, what I'd suggest doing:

    1. Find out your iOS version...
    2. Find the appropriate jailbreak software. (Cydia will be installed during jailbreak process) I.E. blackra1n, redsn0w and etc
    3. Download winterboard and supreme preferences
    4. Enable supreme preferences

    Everything else should be in previous posts on what to do next. It takes a little bit of time and patience... If you choose to jailbreak your phone and what some ideas on what cydia apps... I use only a couple....

    backgrounder: incase i want to leave a program running in the background
    sbsettings: i love how i can access wifi, bluetooth, 3G and etc toggles without going into the settings page
    winterboard: adds themes and etc
    iblacklist: can filter txt, mms and calls coming in my phone

    theres a a couple more but i like those a lot.... Also, I use an 8gig iPhone 3G... so remember you can overload that poor thing... lol

    feel free to PM or ask me questions... i'll help as much as I can...

    It would be interesting if the user who bought the Samsung t255 & the user who purchased the Nokia e71 posted photos of the sim cards. So we could figure out of there is a difference between the actual cards.

    LOL...

    1. yes 4.2.1 can be jailbroken
    2. this can be a flood of foreign information for people to try to grasp... it was for me back in my starting out days...
    3. I have no problem doing this for you... I just recommend sending insured of course. I will PM through this forum my email address along with physical address. If you could send me the following either to my email or in a PM through the forum i'd appreciate it.

    -Your Full Name
    -Address
    -iPhone Size I.E. 8g, 16gig or etc
    -iPhone Model Number (Located on back of phone)
    -IMIE or serial number
    -and what you want me to do to your phone


    I want all this so i can create a document stating you are sending me this exact phone to do the certain actions requested and etc. This way theres accountability for the phone. Just to cover both our butts...

    and some people are worried that jailbreaking a phone is illegal... well a law was passed stating that it isn't... so if you had any doubts if it was or not...
