    I currently have a 3gs and I am unhappy with the at&t service. I love my iphone and was thinking of going to tmobile. I see that the iphone will not work on tmobile's 3g network but I was wondering if the i4 will work on the 4g network? If so I am going the tmobile route ASAP! Any help would be appreciated.

    No.
    BTW their so called 4G network is just a "faster" 3G still.
    So with any iphone on Tmobile you'd be stuck with 2G data only.

    Not, It won't even work on the "3G".

    Their 4G is HSPA+ which is expected to be on the iP5 (of course based on nothing but rumors). If that is the case I believe AT&T HSPA+ is compatible with theirs but not positive.

    Well traditionally the different levels of coverage work on different frequencies. ie. 2g-3g are on different frequencies and the iphone will work on the 2g. So that is what made me think there might be a chance. Seems logical that the possibility is worth checking out. You must be the type that thinks all pizza is the same, so there's no need to try a pizza while your in Chicago! Thanx for your help!

    Thanks to all of you guys who answered with ACTUAL answers, it helped me decide to wait before I renew or switch carriers.
