    Since the iPhone 4 uses pentaband, does that mean that T-Mobile 3G will also work on it?

    T-Mobile 3G is 1700MHz, not included on the iPhone.

    Yea the "extra" band is 800, which is used in Japan by NTT Docomo.

    According to the released FCC documents, it's actually a pentaband chip. Apple might never have any plans to use the extra band so therefore just call it a "quad-band" for simplicity standpoint.

    Where did you hear that? The official specs, including the Japanese ones, don't mention 800.

    Edit: Acknowledging your edit.
