I Phone 4 question

If I purchase a sim free I phone 4 locked to T mobile, will my Tmobile SIM work in it, or does it need a special SIM card

Thats novel .. never thought of that .. your provider shop will do a swap for free AFAIK vodphone certainly does, both down and back if required

I'd buy it. T mobile are linked with Orange now. I am able to utilise the Orange network and the T mobile network. I have some really good apps especially with marine maps and charts. iPad next!

I did use the adaptor to cut the sim down, the first old sim cut and worked perfectly but then I did the working phone and this did not work as well and I then ended buying another sim card from the provider at 10 but they wont sell a micro sim unless you upgrade your account and this means a 20 a month increase from my present contract.

So not as sucessful as I hoped. Along with te issue of the phone seller having to refund the payment due to a paypal dispute this has not been a good experience.

Now I know the I phone 3 has a normal sim I should have gone down that route. So the present unused I phone 4 16g may be advertised soon.

That means you don't get a signal in twice as many places

How right you are, also had to install phone boosters in the loft to get a signal on any network
