    AFAIK, it will be due to the fact that the ICCID (or one of those codes) for T-mobile US and T-mobile DE are different.

    Someone actually claimed that it may work on Tmobile in the US, but I do not agree as Apple is not stupid enough to do it to ATT and lost money from the conflicts in contract between the two.

    This would be an interesting test to see. I dont believe that t-mobile would use different technologies across the seas but who knows.

    I we'll have to wait till November to really see. Thats when iPhone goes on sale in Germany. If by chance it works I'd be willing to buy a German phone and use it here in the US without worrying that it will be bricked by Apple when I do updates.

    They may have roaming rates similar to your normal rates.
