    I believe the T-Mobile 3G network uses a different frequency than the AT&T one. The iPhone is only able to "read" the AT&T 3G frequency because of the baseband. It's something that software can't fix. It's a hardware problem.

    True. They use different frequencies.

    The 3G and the 3Gs will have the same internet speed with T-Mobile. I don't have T-Mobile so I don't know there internet speed.

    With Tmobile you will get EDGE speeds which you might get up to 3-4x faster than dial up.

    Hey, Miss, I have a suggestion to lower your costs.

    Go to the Apple store. Buy your 3G[s] and connect it to AT&T.

    Go home, wait 3 or 4 days, and then call AT&T and cancel your contract.

    You'll get the iPhone 3G[s] for $234 (including tax), and about $175 earlytermination fee. So in total, you're looking at approx $415 total. Which is significantly less than a $700+ factory unlocked iPhone.

    Plus, if you read the forums, or talk to some nice people who can help you, you can jailbreak and unlock your phone to T-Mobile.

    The whole process takes less than 20 minutes.

    thats a good plan but wait i talked to a at&t rep and they said if i cancel my plan before 30 days it wont cost anything...why would i have to pay a termination fee to disconnect from the 30 day trial..and another question...when i go buy an iphone at the apple store will they actually give me the phone or would they make me activate with at&t and have me get the actual phone from them??


    thanks
