    I'm planning to get the iPhone 4S/5 (whichever :D) for T-Mobile unlocked to switch off my current BlackBerry.

    Anyone else? Or are you switching to another carrier just for the new iPhone?

    I will not, I repeat I will not change carriers for a iphone!



    If one of the alleged models supports AWS and can be unlocked I will give it a try.

    I'm on Tmobile with an Nexus S currently. I will consider switching depending on what happens tomorrow.

    I'm namely looking for obviously the 3G band support, but also turn-by-turn voice navigation. I rely on it too much on my NS to leave it.

    I would purchase one unlocked if it included the AWS bands, the day it becomes available. I would save approx $700 'subsidising it myself' over 2 years using my existing TMO plan.

    Definitely, especially those who are grandfathered in to our plans.



    I wouldn't count on getting 3G band support on T-Mo's network, or Apple probably would have just released the phone with T-Mobile as well, but you never know! I'd be fine with EDGE though.

    Yes. I will. It still pisses me off that Apple would put one on CB but not T-Mo.

    You're right -- I just searched that and read up on it.

    There may be hope yet for 3G! :rolleyes:
