    Default 3G on tmobile
    I was thinking, the only thing missing on the iPhone is tmobile 3G due to it not being able to pick up on the frequency. I read somewhere that all apple had to do was add an extra chip to the phone to get it working. Has anyone tried installing this chip?

    The question is, where to get that chip from. It has to be a certain model/size and the drivers must be compatible. I also heard that with the new 3G chips the frequency can be programmed into the phone, although I'm not sure iPhones use that same type of chip

    this makes me wonder if you can mod a usb cellular modem to plug into an iphone's charger, and share it's internet with it.
