Pulling this info out into a separate entry. This is how to set up the iPhone to enable data access on the US T-Mobile network.

Settings->General->Network

Enable 3G: off
Data Roaming: on
T-Mobile recommends turning WiFi off, but I have had no problems with WiFi enabled.

Settings->General->Network->Cellular Data Network

Note: This requires an unlocked iPhone, obviously. Ask your carrier about getting your phone unlocked. It took me about two weeks with Optus in Australia and they did it at no charge.

For the record, I wouldn't recommend the iPhone if:
  • You spend a lot of time away from a power point.
  • You make more than 3 phone calls a day.
  • You live in Australia and are with Optus (their 3G network is patchy and slow).
  • You rely on your mobile for your livelihood.

For me personally, having an iPhone is win for the following reasons:
  • I can check my email from anywhere (not that I need to, but it's cool anyway), even in the middle of Northern NSW. ;>
  • I can chat on IM as long as I'm not busy at work or asleep. :p
  • I can Google anywhere.
  • It's no longer painful to conduct a conversation over SMS.
  • I carry my music library everywhere I go (and I don't need to cart around a separate iPod!).
  • I has a Shiny (lame, but I am a shiny obsessed geek).
