    They are in the midst of expanding their coverage to HSPA+ (3.9G of sorts since it technically isn't 4G). Why would they go under next year, what makes this article say this?

    Plus I think you should change your name from iLoveMyApple to iLoveTheSearchButton -- too many Verizon and T-Mo threads.

    It would need a specific iphone built to work with Tmobile USA 3G band cause all the current models only work with 2G.
    It would be nice since their plans are cheaper and if you're at a good 3G locationg their speed is good also.
    But probably not any time soon.

    I agree there are a lot of these threads, but if your so against them why do you even open the thread up. There is a bunch of a$$ holes on this site. People yelling at people for not using the search button is getting as old as people not using the search button.

    I don't know why I opened it up. Probably because it was 2:30 and I was hitting my work-day wall and was bored. I still asked what makes the article or the OP think that T-Mobile is going under in 2011. If anything it seems like they would have the capabilities to carry a device like the iPhone considering they are putting a lot of funds into expanding their coverage/speed.

    Apple would have to redo their antenna, as T-Mobile uses a 3G band that is different from AT&T, and from what I know, the rest of the world.

    T-Mobile isn't bad, although I really wished they and AT&T would have kept the same bands for 3G.

    As a T-mobile user... I don't want the iPhone coming in and messing up the network.

    I get good coverage in my city, wicked fast 3G speed and cheap monthly prices for unlimited data. I even used my phone to tether wifi while I was on vacation in a cabin with no internet.

    That will all go away if they get the iPhone.

    I hope it stays on AT&T forever.

    I just switched from T-Mobile just to get the iPhone. I'm not sure how I would feel about the iPhone going to T-Mobile for a few reasons. Con: Service sucks in general even though its fast. Pros: T-Mobile is much cheaper, but who knows what would happen if they added the iPhone.
