oic. you should really do some research before you purchase it!

ok, here goes... the iphone you purchased, is it SP unlock? or jailbreak? you got data on your M1 line? is the sim 3G enable (or did you get a 2G iphone)?

Jailbreak = enabling third party softwares (ie. not only from the Appstore) to be installed in an iPhone. It usually invalidate all warranties to your phone (which probably don't make any difference to you since you buy iPhone from another country).
SP = my best guess, Service Provider. If you buy from some SP in US or Europe, sometimes the device is locked so that it can only work with the SIM card from that particular SP.

As to your question about GPRS/data setting on your iPhone I don't think you can sms and get auto config with M1. You need to set them up manually which is not that difficult. Go to their website and obtain all the necessary username/passwords/setting. Just need a little bit of IT knowledge. This, is provided your iPhone is SP unlocked.

If it confuses you... then you probably would find it useful to ebay your current iPhone and just buy from Singtel :P

BTW. after half a year of searching they finally found a security gap in the iPhones 3G software and unlocked it.

The official software is supposed to be available on New Years eve, called yellowsn0w :)

Software based Jailbreak? That's possible? If so it's great as it won't invalidate the warranty ya?
