    I'm planning on buying the HTC Desire unlocked online and use it on a T-Mobile Prepaid plan. Would this work, if so would I have 3G? Thanks in advance! :D

    Yup as long your phone is "sim free" which is another term used for unlocked phones. When I got my sim free Desire I used T-mobile sim for first few months now Ive switched over to 3uk without any problems so I dont see why you shouldn't be able to do the same.

    Thank you! How much do you think a Desire would sell for now? I'll unlock it myself if I have to if it'll be cheaper :D

    Steep??
    Sounds pretty cheap to me.

    Anyway, just as an addendum. You will get 3G, but not HSDPA unless you pay extra for Web 'n' Walk+.
