So, it's pretty much the same as here The only reason I'm still with T Mobile is my wife's friend works for them and got me a crazily cheap deal and a free Google G1. T Mobile UK is shit, and we can get T Mobile iPhone's here, so I think you probably will get them in the US.

I loved T Mobiles prices and customer service.....but the service really sucked. Then I switched to Verizon and got a Droid. When I was working as a vendor for ATT, the big word was Verizon is getting an iPhone, but the rumor was it wasn't going to be the same iPhone that AT&T has (3GS or 4) it would be a new model of some sort.

Dunno, T-mobile gets better reception than Verizon here, and ATT just charges too much.

Doesn't the US iPhone ship with the 1900mhz radio, where it'd need 1800mhz to be on T-Mobile? According to this it doesn't have 1800mhz, which is what T-Mobile is on...

It'd work on the EDGE network, but not on 3G...

That part I'm not totally clear on. I just know when I had my 2G, it was a common thing to hacktivate a phone and use it on T-Mobile.

EDIT: Maybe since it was EDGE network only, it seemed to be 100% cross network compatible for the time?

Yes, any iPhone (Or any AT&T phone for that matter) will work on T-Mobile, but on EDGE only. No US iPhone will work on 3G on T-Mo.
