    Go to www.motomodders.net and to www.howardforums.com and read the
    tutorials first. You'll learn a lot there and get links to other good
    sites as well. As for the choice between TMo or Cingular, it really
    depends on who has better coverage in your specific locations. TMo seems
    to be the winner on price and customer service and I've been very happy
    with them. I'm coming up on 2 years but have no plans to leave. I'll
    either stay month to month or reup if they give me a good spiff.
    Locked vs. unlocked is only important if you plan on using other SIMs
    when you travel abroad. I do know that TMo will unlock the phone after
    90 days upon request.
