    Indeed, I agree, just playing Devil's Advocate. At the moment the fastest the iPhone will go with ATT while on their network (not including WiFi, which T-Mo has WiFi phones) is the same as T-Mobile's network.

    Course, the next iPhone's will probably be 3G, as AT&T rolls out their 3G network to a point where its actually feasible, not just in a few major markets...

    just playing Devil's Advocate.

    I agree with beyondthetech's post on hofo

    Apple servers on AT&T Network equals a good thing?
    A couple of articles have recently reported that Apple was implementing servers on AT&T's network (see here and here).

    Call me the neverending conspiracy theorist, but I think the notion of Apple placing their servers in their network is an answer to one of my prayers I made long ago when I first heard that the iPhone was going to use EDGE and not 3G, and I mulled about how sluggish a full, "real" web browser experience would be at EDGE speeds so late in the wireless game.

    If you've ever heard of Venturi Personal Client, Propel Accelerator, ByteMobile Acceleration, you'll know where I'm going with this. What if the iPhone has some sort of an acceleration client when it's using the EDGE network, and that the Apple servers are serving as the gateway/server?

    For those who DON'T know what the above programs are, the technology is simple. Instead of a mobile device or notebook pulling a web page directly from the Internet, it makes a request to an acceleration server. The server compresses everything it can, from images to HTML code, even stripping out pop-ups and ads on request, and sends the compressed data down to you. The client interprets the compressed information and decodes it back to usable form. This saves a lot of time and bandwidth, and you can really see its performance on dial-up, GPRS, EDGE, and 1xRTT.

    Now, why are they putting it on AT&T's network? Well, it's obviously not needed on Wi-Fi. And, furthermore, it'll only be useful to AT&T subscribers... yet another reason why they'll be definitely influencing people to sign up for a contract. If the iPhone was unlocked and being used on any other GSM carrier, you'll only go as fast as their EDGE will provide you. But, in conjunction with this "Fine EDGE" they are implementing, your iPhone's EDGE experience on AT&T's network will not be disappointing.

    What do you think?

    i think its really not that bad. if you look at it. the pinnacle of business phones which are blackberrys pretty much all have edge on them. i have not seen a blackberry yet with 3G. and check this out. my dad is one of the vps of a company, and they all use blackberrys which still have edge. and their stuff is pretty demanding. edge isn't that bad.

    blackjack runs windows mobile, which isn't just orientated for business. blackberrys are like business to the max. but now they are also becoming consumer items.
