unlocked iPhone on M1 or other networks

Well just wanted to share some tips and "settings" information for M1 users who are using the iPhone (or are thinking of using the M1 SIM card in the Singtel iPhone - like me ;) )

- Make sure u have signed up a "mobile internet" sunsurf plan .. or be prepared to have your bill shoot into the stratosphere (a SunSurf 22 with 1GB data at 3.6Mbps is only $22 with $10.70 per GB. Quite reasonable. Can activate online or over phone. Almost immediate activation)
- Make sure u got a 3G SIM card. If you are already using a 3G phone, more than likely you have a 3G SIM card. Your SIM card should also have the word "3G" on it. If not sure, call M1 at 1627 to check.
- In the "Settings>General>Network>Cellular Data Network>" Enter the following:
APN: sunsurf
Username: 65
Password: user123
And voila! ... you are done.
- to check your 3G is working properly, you may turn off "Wifi" ("Settings>Wi-Fi>Off"), and see if you can access the internet via Safari or App Store. You should see a 3G logo at the top right hand corner too when 3G is in use.

So here you go. If you are a lucky chap able to get an unlocked (all Singtel and some countries like Australia) iphone, here's how you get it to run on M1. 

*As for Starhub, I'm sure the tips above apply, except the data network APN, username and password would obviously be different. You can call Starhub for it. Other networks? Just make sure you get those cellular data APN,username and password right.

why issit necessary to upgrade to SunSurf or any other plan that allows for internet? can't u just use WiFi?

nice tips.. yes, although there is hotspots everywhere. but it good to be able to surf the internet and check your emails on the move. you can't be looking for a hotspot to start checking emails. i plan to get sunsurf22.... 1gb should be more than enough for me for regular checking of emails.. the price for unlimited plan ridiculous. $60+ with my subscription plan will add up to $100+... lol...

But if you have the baseband 05.11.07 this don’t downgrade the baseband to 4.6!

Start redsn0w 0.9.3 and point it to the original iPhone OS 3.1.2 firmware for iPod touch to proceed. This is required because redsn0w 0.9.3 can not read or validate iPhone OS 3.1.3 firmware.

At this stage you will be presented with a screen where you will have to quickly hold “Power” button and then while holding the “Power” button, you will now have to hold
