Anyone have an iphone? I'm thinking about getting one, the only problem is that I don't want to switch to att. I heard there was a simple hack that would allow you to chose witch ever plan you wanted. Anyone have experience with this? About how much is the plan with unlimited text and internet? Do you even have to pay for the internet??
Should I wait for the Diamond (supposedly better sprint phone)??

Its called Jailbreak and allows you to put the iPhone on other GSM networks. Sprint, much like Verizon is CDMA. You will not be able to put the iPhone on a CDMA network. Dont know off hand what other networks are GSM.

My buddy says that he cant forward txt/mms mesages nor can he even view MMS messages that everyone one else on every cell phone can view. Can someone comfirm or deny this please.

buy an iphone(gsm only) and use iplus to unlock/jailbreak. Very easy and straight forward to do I got mine going in less than 20 minutes when I got home. I use tmobile and send/recieve mms messages using swirly mms just fine.
Referbs are here, get them now they wont last long.

Grant your buddy is correct. I can view and send text messages all day long but no mms yet. Supposedly, MMS is coming in the next firmware release to coincide with the release of iPhone 2. But we'll wait and see if that happens or not.

The only other carrier besides ATT that is GSM is T-Mobile save for the smaller regional carriers. Your service would have to be with one of those two in order to use it.

BTW, ATT just put the refurbished models back up for sale today. $249 for an 8gb and $349 for a 16gb. I got one last time and it looked brand spanking new and you would never know it was ever refurbished. Plus, it comes with a one year warrant as a new phone does so no worries there.

Wait a couple months for the iPhone Black. Sprint is trying to boast their new phone compared to the old iPhone, but they have no idea what is about to hit them with the iPhone Black. Its going to be pretty funny when they keep losing millions and millions of people because Sprint sucks.
You can use the iPhone with any sim based network. Pretty much everyone except Verizon.
I have 2 iPhones (me and wife) and I pay (after taxes) $140/mo
unlimited data
700 minutes
1500 texts (per phone)

Over the years, I've been with pretty much every major carrier in my area. Here they are in my opinion ranked in order of reception quality, not phone or service quality.
1. Verizon
2. At&t
3. Sprint
4. T-Mobile
5. Centenial

I had a treo 700w for over 2 years and switched to the iPhone, I have no regrets and no plan on ever switching to a different phone anytime soon. I <3 my iPhone(s).

Wow, that's a lot of cash for what you're getting!!

I say it again - the Sprint SERO plan can not be beat. And the HTC Mogul and Touch can do just about anything the iphone can do, and a WHOLE lot more.

You'd save about $80 a month with the sprint phones. And you'd get faster internet, GPS, and thousands of aplications/games/software to download.

Some good information. Turbo, could I have some more info on your plan? Is yours a family plan?? I will be using mine by myself. My parents think cell phones are a waste.

Plus...at&t already has seperate skews for the two iPhones...the iPhone, and the iPhone Black. We'll see June 9th at the WWDC...

If everyone is thinking alike, someone isn't ...

Yeah, I think I'll do that. Now I'm worried about paying for all the songs I'll need for it

OH! Hey, how about battery life??? Does it seems to be a reasonable amount of duration??

This plan is only available if you were referred by a Sprint/Nextel employee.

Remember when flying inverted that down is up and up is EXPENSIVE!

If Sprint is so awesome, why are they losing 1.3M subscribers every quarter?

I dunno, it works for me. I get unlimited broadband wireless internet wherever I go. I don't think I've ever found a spot where I didn't have coverage..

It works perfect for me, saves me a lot of money, I won't be leaving anytime soon.
