    Just because T-Mobile has the iPhone in the Fatherland doesn't mean they'll get it in North America. From what i understand, T-Mobile U.S. is pretty widely regarded as having shit reception and even shittier data service, so i doubt Apple would go with them unless they SERIOUSLY upgraded their network.

    It's almost a foregone conclusion that the iPhone will be coming to more carriers (particularly Verizon) when the AT&T exclusivity period is up next year. But any other carriers would depend largely on the state of their infrastructure. Apple doesn't want to give their halo product to carriers with bad networks, because Apple ends up taking a lot of flak for it. (e.g. Antennagate.)

    I think its pretty far fetched to say they have shitty recpetion. I rarely have issues with Tmobile.

    Apparently, Steve Jobs haaaaates AT&T. After the exclusivity, I wouldn't be surprised if he made a version for both Verizon and T-Mobile. (And Sprint! Ok, maybe not...)

    Also, there are three new carriers in Canada that share T-Mobiles bands, so while all their subscribers in total probably equals the amount of subscribers that T-Mobile has in one city block, it wouldn't be a bad idea to factor them in when deciding whether to allow T-Mobile to carry the iPhone.

    The big thing in the favor of the iPhone on T-Mobile is that it ships with hardware that works on their network. A jailbroken iPhone just requires a SIM card swap to work... it's not totally out of the question.

    Well, like most carriers in the U.S., there are good regions and bad ones. When i was in NYC a few years ago, everybody there hated T-Mobile because their GSM network was terrible.

    The one thing I notice with T-Mobile down here is that it is very spotty. It's good if you're in or very near to a big city, but once you are outside of it, boom, no coverage at all.
