    i think we have a miss understand here.. im not saying that iphone will not work ... yes tis quad band GSM.. it will work on all gsm frequencies.. but...3G is different from gsm.. it runs on a separate technology..l.. they will for sure not make 1700 3G frequency...which will be used by tmobile US ... end of story.. u guys dont need to believe me but trust me they will not do it.. once it comes out all of you will see.. and its not dumb for apple not to use it.. that would be another way for trying to switch customers from tmobile to att...but of course all of u know best..
    yes 3gIPHONE will work on tmobiles gsm coverage no question about that.. but it will not work on tmobiles us 3g frequency.. meaning you WILL NOT be able to stream data on fast 3g networks on tmobile us but will still be able to use it as a phone and edge speeds thats all...

    If that was such a concern it would have made sense that there was an 850/1900 version of the iPhone and a 900/1800 version so that people couldn't buy it out of contract and take them to Europe. The SIMLOCK is the real method used to switch people.

    It was laughable when T-Mobile disabled GSM850 in all their handsets, because it made the amount of free roaming coverage less for T-Mobile subscribers. They've since stopped doing that.

    By the time there is a 3G iPhone, it's likely that the 3G chipset they'll use will support all available UMTS/HSDPA bands. Why would they disable a portion of it?

    If that band is absent, it's going to be for the same reason that there were only WCDMA-2100 only phones available for a long period of time. The band won't yet be in enough use to justify making the hardware support it, as was the case when AT&T Wireless' and Cingular's UMTS rollouts weren't very far along but Europe's was. If T-Mobile's rollout moves quickly, it would make sense to support it for roaming purposes.
