    No it won't. While muggz5 seems like an ***, he's right. The iPhone 3g WONT work with t-mo USAs 3g network. For one thing, 2100 is just a rounded out number. They're not all the same frequency. And even if they were, you'd still need the 1700 band to connect to t-mo's 3g towers. Which the iPhone doesn't have. See, it's not one or the other. It's both bands together. So basically it's like he said. You just bought a 3g iPhone just for the prettier casing. You might as well gone, and sticked with, the first gen iPhone....

    and BTW: $299 for a contract free iPhone? Nope. I don't think so. You either payed all your fees which brought it to around $600 or you went ahead and ruinned your credit by just not honoring your contract that you had to sign with AT&T to get it for that price. Nice.

    Ps. For future references: they hire any jacka$$ of legal working age for CS. Don't believe everything the zit covered teen on his summerjob, answering phones or working behind the counter at your local mall t-mo kiosk, says.
    I Spoke to a T-Mobile Rep. Sir, But Hey If It Don't Work I Really Wouldn't Care Cause I'm Surrounded By Free WiFi Not To Mention That The 3G iPhone Is A Lot Better That The First Gen. iPhone + I Have Both & I Guess We'll Have To Wait To See Sometime In Oct. ...... Also I Paid $324 & Never Even Ran Credit Or Owned An AT&T Phone. Let's Just Say I Got People (H&R Block Slogan....LOL).

    First make sure the sim adapter is installed properly. Once you have done that disable the 3G and let the phone recognize the sim card with the adapter installed as soon as you see the carrier name appear go to settings/general/reset and rest the network setting. You will now see the Edge symbol.

    That's All You Have To Do!
    I Have T-Mobile USA (internet2.voicestream.com)Make sure you check your APN settings
    Note: I noticed that after reseting the network settings the sim adapter turned off the 3G automatically, forced selected T-Mobile as my carrier and turned on data roaming.



    I noticed you have the Carrier Selection menu on your phone. Is it a U.S. iPhone? If so, did the sim adapter make it appear? I have been hounding Apple about making it show up for me for a month now to no avail. I want that option.

    I'm going overseas for a month and I'm looking at using this on my iPhone 3G 2.2 that was activated by AT&T and Jailbroken. You think it won't mess up my AT&T service when I come back to the US? I'm only gonna be using the unlock for a month so I won't have to bring an extra phone or buy another phone in the country I'll be going to.

    Default edge just won't set
    I called tmo to make sure unlimited internet was setup, but the brando chip will only do voice.

    edge settings just won't take. No edge icon.

    edge seems fine with my att sim.

    internet2.voicestream.com

    and

    wap.voicestream.com

    do not pull up edge icon.

    I even reflashed back to 2.2 without jailbreak. No dice.

    not sure what to do to get edge working.
