Gchat statuses on the iPhone/iPod Touch vs. Gmail

In regular Gmail, my friends' chat statuses show up as red, green, or greyed out. I know that if they're greyed out it might be because they're not signed in or because they've gone invisible. In Gchat on the iPhone/iPod Touch, there's a little more variation in how their statuses appear (not on the list at all, greyed out without profile pic, greyed out with profile pic) and I'm looking to understand whether those variations tell me if they're there but "invisible" vs "signed out."

Mistake, or Not?

I'm thinking of switching from Verizon to AT&T and getting an iPhone. I have the iTouch and I love it. However, to save some money, I'm thinking of getting the iPhone 3GS ($150); nothing the newer iPhone ($200) has interests me. Am I making a big mistake? [more inside]

How do I upgrade from the original iPhone to the iPhone 4 on T-Mobile?

When the first iPhone came out, I bought it as soon as I could and jailbroke it so I could use it on T-Mobile. Now I want to upgrade to the newest iPhone and use it with my existing plan which works great (I pay t-mobile some standard data rate, I don't have 3G, that's okay, and everyone is happy). What are my options? Is this even possible? Any and all resources welcome. Thank you!

can you stream online radio on your phone while walking?

Using your smartphone, can you listen to online live radio while walking around your city? I'm trying to do this (with my iPhone, in Paris) and it only works if I stay in one place; if I move more than about 500m, it usually disconnects. I'm curious to know if others have the same experience so that I can determine if it's my carrier, the phone, the city, or just general limitations of 3G GSM networks. (Note: I'm not talking about Pandora or Spotify; I'm referring specifically to live radio streams which can't buffer minutes ahead). [more inside]

Consolidate my family's Apple device accounts.

I have two kids. Each has an ipod touch. Planning on adding two more to the household (mom and dad). Problem: I created an itunes store ID for each kid. Looking backward, wouldn't it have been smarter to create ONE Apple ID for the family, so I can see what is being purchased? I had a recent breach in my credit card and had several unauthorized purchases from Itunes...having one account might have led me to see this fraud a little sooner. (apart from checking my credit card statement daily) What do you multi-iphone-Touch families do? one account? If the devices all get registered to one account, can one transfer a paid app from one device to another? Will apps already purchased be lost if I consolidate the devices under a different username? Any family Apple device strategies appreciated.
