iPhone soon on T-Mobile Network?… Make sense

Many of you probably own an iPhone , but how many of you are on AT&T ? How many of you want to switch companies but becuase you love the iPhone you can’t. I believe that is gonna end soon.

AT&T’s exclusive hold on the iPhone is coming to an end, and speculation is bubbling as to which U.S. carrier will get the iPhone. Verizon has been hot tipped to take over the iPhone, but the latest iPhone-trashing campaign for the Motorola Droid could mean it’s not going to happen.  What is the other carrier left ?…. Yes, T-Mobile.

Analyst Dough Reid tells The Street that he sees T-Mobile as a potential home for the iPhone.  Raid said : “Apple wants to move away from exclusivity; T-Mobile would achieve this for Apple in the U.S.,”…. that makes completely sense.

Apple wouldn’t have to manufacture a different iPhone to run on T-Mobile’s network, as the GSM version of the iPhone that runs on AT&T would work. To offer the iPhone on Verizon’s network, Apple would have to manufacture a new device.  But what about the 3G bands that T-Mobile uses. iPhone uses 850/1900 HSDPA while T-MO uses 1700/2100. I wonder if Apple would make any modifications about the 3G bands.

We just hope and Apple apply the non- exclusivity here in the USA, like it did it in Europe.

So far i am using the iPhone 3G on T-Mo network and not problems with that.

    I've been with T-mobile for almost two years – and I'm counting the days till I'm free of them.
    They aren't as greedy as the other telecos, but their coverage is poor. 3G is a laugh. On the other hand, if I want an IPHONE, the Verizon/AT&T price is about $3200 a year depending on how they soak you. That's a lot of money.

    If the iPhone comes to T-Mobile it will have to have 1700/2100 MHz AWS to handle the 3G chores. If it doesn't bring 3G with it, it should stay home.
