    Since the iphone 4s is a world phone, will it be able to use T-mobile's 3G band?

    Anyone know or have any guesses?

    As a T-mobile user myself, I don't think it'll run on T-Mobile 3G :(

    Hoping i'm wrong though.

    A look at the specs for the 4S says no 3G on t-mobile.

    Unlocked 4S will only get 2g speeds on Tmobile USA. Everywhere else will be 3G.

    Will the 4S be available for purchase as a factory unlocked phone in the U.S.?

    Well that just sucks. I guess it looks like if I don't want to switch carriers then I'll be going to get a Windows Phone (and with Mango, I'll be pretty happy with that). Although, I'm still holding out hope that Apple releases a model compatible with T-Mobile 3G part way through the product cycle like they did with the Verizon iPhone 4.

    Nope

    T-Mobile 3G = 1700 / 2100

    4S Tech Specs:

    UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz);
    GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

    Thank the damn corrupt FCC. They couldn't have just let T-Mobile use bands that the REST OF THE WORLD uses. Had T-Mobile had some normal 3G bands, they probably would have gotten it well before Verizon.
