    So there have been rumors of HSPA+ support in the up coming iPhone release, and also rumors of Apple testing a T-Mobile based iPhone. If the iPhone 5 is world phone do you think we will be seeing support for even more carriers like Sprint or T-Mobile?

    T-Mobile advertises their HSPA+ network as being "4G" and AT&T seems to be doing a similar thing. If they are the same protocol would there be any trouble jailbreaking to get "4G" speeds on T-Mobile if Apple doesn't natively support it, or is AT&T's implementation of HSPA+ different to T-Mobile's?

    What's the difference? In another year or two, T-Mobile will be part of AT&T.

    i hope not. the cell phone business is monopolized enough as it is right now.

    Capitalism at it's finest. As long as I get better service & faster speeds, I'm all for it.

    unless Apple adds 1700MHz that T-Mobile uses.
