    "Quadband GSM, Steve Jobs said, and you could hear the hiss of excitement as eager T-Mobile USA customers suddenly wondered if they’d be able to take advantage of the iPhone 4. Unfortunately, a quick glance at the freshly posted spec sheet confirms their hopes are in vain: the iPhone 4 supports 850, 900, 1900 and 2100 MHz UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA, not the 1700/2100 T-Mobile USA requires."

    Is 1700/2100 not a GSM standard? I don't get it so I checked Wikipedia:
    T-Mobile USA - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    (see weird history and why they did what they did with their 3G)

    Another rumor is T-Mobile U.S. will get the iPhone 4 in several months.
    Apple Could Add T-Mobile as iPhone Carrier, Says Analyst - Mobile and Wireless from eWeek
    iPhone 4 Could Be Headed for T-Mobile Before Verizon
    I'm not how it would work though reading the above! ??

    Let's me do the math for you.

    Tmo
    Unlimited talk and text for $59.99
    Unlimited internet for $10 (s/b $20 but there is a way to get the $10 plan instead of the $20).
    Total bill of $69.99 or $79.99 (depending on how you set up the data plan)

    AT&T
    unlimited talk = $69.99
    Unlimited Txt = $20.00
    No Unlimited Internet so using the 2GB plan = $25 or $45 with tethering (which I can do with T-mo for no add'l cost and prob can do with AT&T without paying the add'l $)
    Total cost per mth for AT&T = $114.99 without taxes or assuming you don't go over the 2GB cap.

    Now subtract out the price of the phone. $199 vs. $599.
    ATT cost over 2 years @ 114.99 = $2759.76 + $199 = $2,958.76
    TMO cost over 2 years @ 79.99 = $1919.76 + $599 = $2,518.76
    TMO cost over 2 years @ 69.99 = $1679.76 + $599 = $2,278.76

    Difference @ 79.99 = $40 savings
    Difference @ 69.99 = $280 savings

    Remember, no contract with TMO and unlimited data vs. 3G speeds, a 2GB cap, and a 2 yr contract. Either way, you save money and get more data.

    That's great, if only 3G worked on TMO though
    (see my post a few above this one with details and new rumor)

    No one will ever understand how the U.S. works, why the U.S. works how it does, and why its citizens continue to let it work the way it does. =/

    Don't even get me started on the drinking age here...

    It is a good option especially if you travel. I might get one the unlocked iPhone 4 from Canada.

    BTW OFFICIALLY unlocked will stay unlocked. I know someone that has a 3G officially unlocked and it is unlocked even after you updated the FW. I use AT&T anyway so I ll dont mind getting if for 299 but this will be an option if I ll travel more so I don't have to use my Nokia instead

    I ordered mine last night through Apple UK. Website says you can order a maximum of two. Have to be picked up in the store or delivered to a valid UK address. I also unlocked my O2 pay as you go 3GS a little while ago, no problems with O2 as carrier, one time cost was 15£. Wery nice that this is possible since my home contry is Norway.

    Going to visit family in Canada in July (hopefully after the release of Iphone 4). Definitely going to check out the apple store. Plus I'm going to check out some of those Asian malls. I remember they used to get all the unlock Nokias (back in the days) before anyone had them in the states. Just gotta justify spending the $600 for another after spending $300 for the stateside one. Hmmm.

    Question...per the apple store website for CN, after putting in the sim, you have to connect to Itunes and choose your carrier. Can you do that more then once, what if you change carriers...connect to Itunes everytime?

    I dont think you can just drive to CN and buy one. Do they ask for proof of Canadian residency?

    this is awesome! haha i can purchase my iphone unlocked!

    So this means we get an iPhone 4 in canada

  15. #94
    I have Not ever seen price plans in Canada differ whether the providers give you the subsidy for a new phone or if you have not upgraded in years. So why pay full price when you can get a locked one for way less then half? The monthly cost will still be the same.

    That is too expensive. I think Apple should automatic unlocked the phone after the contract is up.

    Default Vancouver
    I'll be in Vancouver from the 24th to the 28th.

    Does anyone know for certain yet if non-Canadian's can buy with Canadian currency (cash) an iPhone 4 unlocked?

    Or will it need to be matched with a Canadian address?

    It will be a lot of hassle, setting up a PO box (they have those?), buying a prepaid debit card (they have those also?) to "show" residency (or the appearance of it.)

    Totally out of the question if they require a Canadian drivers license.

    It will be a shame if I'm force to pay $100 to $200 premium to some Ebay guy just to buy an unlocked one from Canada and have it shipped to USA.

    i dont get this does that mean i can get a iphone 4 on the 24th even tho i live in canada??!?!

  19. #98
    So do u have to pre order in canada or can u drive up and pay cash and pick it up in person on release day??

  20. #99
    I'm quite confused about the whole pre ordering idea because I have never pre ordered anything in my life. Okay so say I would like to buy an iPhone 4 without contract at my closest apple store on the pre ordered date specified for Canada if it ever comes out. How does the pre ordering process work? do you pay a deposit and then come back during launch day? please explain and thanks

    I'm in Vancouver, Canada if it helps at all.

    If they are providing unlocked iphones which can have any carrier local sim too. I think they need to unlock all iphones released so far. Will they do so?

    I wish if they could unlock all iphones to make it compatible for any local sim.
