Why is it confusing T-Mobile, like most carriers throughout the world, use GSM. Apart from their strange 3G frequencies they are normal GSM unlike Verizon who use a weird system that means they need completely different phones.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

T-mobile is GSM. That is why iPhones can be unlocked to work on T-mobile.
Not so sure as for the Storm though... never seen an unlocked storm before..

The Storm has 'Global Capabilities' - in other words it works on GSM as well as CDMA
Verizon realize that the rest of the world uses GSM so they need to provide capabilities for their phones to work on other networks.
Virtually no one else uses CDMA so no one else provides CDMA capabilities.

Yes, Apple/AT&T works ... but without choices, there will always be a significant market share Apple can not penetrate. If the % were small ... then who cares. Thank goodness it's big. In the beginning Apple needed a carrier to open their new product line. That's no longer the case. Apple can (and will) sell their iPhone's at a premium (just like Mac's over PC) all day without any exclusives. And think about the programing/testing/support savings that can be saved and improved customer satisfaction if they removed the carrier restriction crapola

Think how easy that would be if there were standards - as in the rest of the world so just removing the carrier lock means your phone can be used on any network.
Due to the weird networks you have in the USA that is not possible without hardware changes.
It's a pity you don't have free competition in the USA....He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I should be allowed to use the phone I want with the service I want it's that simple otherwise they shouldn't sell iPhones in stores without a contract or activation fee.
