    My mom has a IPhone 3gs that she said I could have. I am on TMobile and would have to unlock/jailbreak it, I guess. I'm just wondering what kind of kinks I will run into if I do it. How do I get apps if not on the att network?

    you will void warranty, but apps are all available.

    I think gizmodo had a good guide if I remember right.
    I don't know if being on tmobile blocks you from anything, but I don't see how. When you are on ATT, you get the App Store and Cydia.

    It's a 3gs hand me down. I doubt there's any warranty left.

    I have an Iphone 3gs on tmobile.. Works great, but know that you can't run on 3g. Still works great though. Itunes works with no problems.. Depending on the firmware u may have to use an Ipad base band to unlock. just make sure you don't upgrade the phone. or you'll be stuck with a brick.
