    I have contacts who will begin developing unlock software for it as of the 29th... and who have been very successful with unlock software for other models.

    I don't know whether all the features will even work on T-Mobile, but it would be fun to slip in a t-Mo SIM and find out. Might be worth some big money then.

    I know for a fact Live Voicemail won't work, but data is data for a lot of the other features... Still, even if some stuff wouldn't work, it'd be better to have a 80% working iPhone on T-Mobile than paying $200 to break your T-Mo contract, or do what I do and have two accounts.

    yea I'm lucky, my contract for t-mobile just ended... and i had a sidekick 2
    and the cancellation would have been something outrageous like $200 ( i think someone already said that)

    Verizon is the best coverage in some areas, but if you live in a metropolitan area, it's hard to beat the GSM networks of At&t and T-Mobile.

    Very true. Remote areas are generally better with Verizon, but I drove all the way from Seattle to Tampa a couple years ago, and my T-Mobile Razr was actually only without service about 100-200 miles of the 3300. Not too bad, considering I was driving through nowhere. I was very surprised the areas I could make/receive calls/texts.

    Yah, I think GSM coverage has improved much beyond the stereotype of a few years ago, but everyone still has those stereotypes in mind. I'm not disagreeing that Verizon has the best service, just that T-Mobile and ATT have better than I and others previously thought!

    I've had Cingular-AT&T for years & it's been great.
    I still have 6 mos. on my Razr V3 contract but I've heard they will offer additional 2 yr. contract extensions for customers that want to upgrade phones. I'm on their e-mail notification list for iPhone promotional info.
    I'm glad that Apple selected AT&T to team with the release of the iPhone!

    They wouldn't have started with CDMA, not a global market. Korea and over here... much smarted to think global.
