First, iPhones are NOT allowed on GoPhone service. They sweep for IMEIs.

There is no longer an unlimited data plan for GoPhone, either.

That was nice of him. Believe it or not, a lot of us reps really want what's best for our customers. Problem is, the plans he described to you are NOT GoPhone plans, nor are they iPhone plans.

I always tell people if there's anything a Windows Mobile device can do, the BlackBerry can do it and probably better, especially with an appropriate BIS/BES link.

Jailbreak, definitely. I doubt that's an app in the App Store. LOL

When it comes down to it, your biggest crutch is the fact you're on GoPhone. It has a diminished coverage map and generally crippled rate plans, as to not conflict with "real" plans. Get on traditional service, drop the iPhone, and pick up a 3G BlackBerry, a Bold 9000 or a Bold 9700 if you can snag it at a good price.
