    T-Mobile is slowly losing market share and is doing what they can to attract iPhone using customers, what is chances they are begging/bribing Apple to support their network with iPad 3 (let alone iPhone 5)?

    Sure it is not cell service, but still a revenue source. Parents have ATT iPad 2 even though used to have T-mo service.

    Sadly probably not. But i'm on the same page as you. I BADLY want the iPhone 4S/4 to come to T-Mobile. I guess we will wait and see *in a few months*. :)

    Does T-Mobile cover areas that Verizon/AT&T don't?

    Better to ask: Is the coverage better then Verizon/AT&T?

    AT&T at my house is so poor I get lost connections in some rooms, but T-Mo is strong.

    AT&T is strong everywhere else I use, including at work location middle of nowhere (T-Mo does not get signal there), so I decided to stay.

    Confirmed. My wife's uncle's step-son's girlfriend's sister's boyfriend's aunt is high up in Apple and confirmed this will be the case.

    Latest iPad 3 rumor is it will support LTE, which is obvious since iPad is more reliant on data then voice, the whole point of LTE.

    Could T-Mobile support also be built in?

    IIRC, Verizon started selling iPad 1 with Mi-Wi before they started selling the V-iPhone?
