In the United States, the iPhone is sold exclusively for use on the AT&T wireless network. It is possible, however, to use a "jailbroken" and unlocked iPhone with T-Mobile's prepaid service, which offers both a prepaid unlimited calling plan and a pay-as-you-go prepaid service. As of 2010, you can purchase additional minutes for your prepaid T-Mobile service through the website or from on and offline merchants. You may check your prepaid T-Mobile balance directly from your iPhone at no charge.
