    If the rumors are true that T-Mobile will be the next carrier for the iPhone, does that mean iPad as well? As a T-Mobile customer, that would be sweet.

    Really? T-Mobs 3G coverage is worse than ATT.

    So far in the areas of Northern Virginia I have been in, the 3G service has been pretty decent... been getting between 1Mbps to a high of 3.41Mbps so far...

    I was with T-Mobile for many years (since the color SideKick first came out, then Blackberry Curve, then G1 Android). Their customer service and 3G network are excellent and improving.

    Many signs point to Tmo. Struggling to get back market share, more willing to give concessions to apple high demands and costs. Tmo cell bands are close to AT&T and would not require major new iPhone rebuilds, like verizon would.
    I say it makes a lot of sense all around, esp as android is growing fast partly due to multiple carriers, apple will NOT have that.
    We'll see.

    Unfortunately, T-mobile uses a unique frequency range for their 3G n/w which makes it incompatible with most handsets. The iPhone 4G will have an extra radio to support additional 3G frequency spectrum (like the one used in New Zealand), but it still won't support T-mobile's 3G. I really hope that T-mobile got some fantastic deal on their wireless equipment when they built their n/w....

    I just switched from ATT to T-mobile and in my area (Houston Tx) T-mobile's 3G is faster than ATTs from what I've noticed.

    I think its due to HSDPA + on T-mobile.

    I have both verizonwireless n tmobile. Tmobile sucks. Verizonwireless gives me better coverage
