01-27-2010, 02:22 PM #1Will iphone 2g data work on t-mobile 3g network?
I did some searching on this for about a half hour and couldn't find an answer.
My wife and I both own iphone 2Gs. They are both unlocked and running on t-mobile with the 'tzones' plan option. Well, my wife dropped her iphone in the toilet so now it's on it's last legs. We'll probably be getting her a 3G phone from t-mobile. I'm looking at the plans, and in some cases it's actually less expensive to get 3G for both of us then for just one of us. Will my iphone 2G data work on a 3G t-mobile plan?

iPhones do NOT support the T-Mobile 3G data frequency, only AT&T!
EDGE/GPRS data speeds on T-Mobile USA.

With that said, you will not have access to any 3G speed while using any [current] iPhone on T-Mobile USA's network.
The current iPhones lack band IV (2100 MHz down and 1700 MHz up). And if you didn't guess it, T-Mobile USA uses band IV for their 3G service.
For the iPhone to work with T-Mobile USA (and WIND Mobile), it would need to be quad-band UMTS.

Ok, I understand that I won't be able to get 3g network speeds.
Maybe a better way of asking my question is:
With my 2g iphone, when I remove Tzones from my plan and add 3g, will my Internet over Edge continue to work?
Thanks for your help

>Do not get rid of T-Zones! That is 3G data speeds!
What?!!! So does that mean if I buy a 3g T-mobile Android phone that I will be able to get 3g speeds with t-zones and no 3g option on my plan?
