If I put a T-Mobil SIM card in the iPhone, would it work? (If it was unlocked)?

But then would I lose stuff like the Edge network?

No, TMobile also has an EDGE network. However, if you don't have a data plan with TMobile, then you will be charged by the KB, which can get pretty expensive when using the iPhone. Fortunately, you can turn EDGE off if you don't want it to access data.

One downside of using a non-Apple authorized carrier is that you don't get Visual Voicemail.
