    You cannot get 3G on AT&T's network with a T-Mobile branded device.

    AT&T and T-Mobile use different frequency bands for their 3G networks, so T-Mobile devices on AT&T get only EDGE, and AT&T devices on T-Mobile also get only EDGE.

    Nope, you'll only be on EDGE.
    As said above, You can't get 3G on AT&T's network with a T-Mobile branded device.

    You should've researched a bit more prior to purchasing your 9780.

    Activate and use the phone on Tmobile and you can.

    Or sell it and buy a Rogers, Bell, or Telus 9780. You'll be able to get 3G with one of those carrier phones.
