    Default 3G on tmobile usa

    I spoke to customer service at tmobile today and they told me that all 3G networks, including ATT, use tmobile's 3G sattelites or whatever and that they "thought" an unlocked 3G iphone should work on tmobile's 3G network.

    I gather that this is not the case by reading threads here, but can someone tell me why? isn't 3G 3G no matter what company is offering it?

    no it won't work, same technology but different frequencies,AT&T uses the 1900/2100 MHz frequency, T-Mob in the US uses HSDPA 1700/2100 (different than the rest of the world).

    if you have data plan w/ t-mobile, go to setting>general>network>
    Cellular Data>APN and input epc.tmobile.com
    all username and password leave blank

    don't forget to turn off 3g signal and turn on data roaming

    Dosnt the country that use t-mobile as the official iPhone 3g provider use the same iPhone? Even if it's a diffrent iPhone than our USA iPhone is that pretty much an impossible hack?

    is not the iphone where the problem resides in.... it is in the frequencies T-mobile USA uses for its 3G service....
