    Hi, my iPhone 4 on AT&T is about to kick the dust, and since I'm about 2 months away from contact renewal, I'm looking at picking u a phone on Craigslist. I've been an iOS user since the first iPhone came out, but picked up my friends Samsung Focus a few months ago, and I haven't been able to get windows phone 7 outta my head. I think I'm ready to make the switch (at least until the iPhone 5 comes out later in 2012).

    So, I have an option to get a decently cheap HTC HD7 off of Craigslist. It's originally a tmobile phone that's been unlocked to use on AT&T. However, I'm not really sure if it will be able to use AT&T 3G or just edge. Can anyone confirm/deny? I know AT&T has their own version, but I won't be able to get it for at least 2 months, so I'd need a phone to hold me over until then.

    Also, if I were to get a micro sim adapter, do you think I could switch back and forth between the hd7 and the iPhone on the same AT&T contract? If possible, I'd like to be able to use both, depending on mood.

    Thanks for your answers and help! Looking forward to being a new member of the WP7 community!

    It will only run on EDGE.
    iPhones use a different Data Plan (server?) than other phones, as does RIM. While i have switched between a iPhone and a Palm Pre 2 without any trouble that has only happened a coupe times, the other times I've had to call in and change it.
    Current: iPhone 4S
    Past: [Palm] Pre 2, Pre+ - [iPhone] White 3GS 16gb, Black 3G 8gb - [Blackberry] Torch 9800, Onyx 9700, Bold 9000, Pearl 8120 - [Android] HTC Aria - [WM] HTC Fuze, HTC HD7S
