    Will an unlocked 9500 work for tmobile in the US? Will it not have certain capabilities that the 9530 would have?

    This is the definition for edge
    https://support.t-mobile.com/doc/tm22696.xml

    the 9500 has 2 speeds for internet connectivity 1) 3G speed which is high speed and 2) EDGE which is much slower than 3G. 3G speed is only supported on Verizon and Vodafone since the 3G chip frequencies are only supported by those carriers. Where are EDGE frequencies are supported by ATT and Tmobile. If you decided to use it on Tmobile you will need to follow certain steps to get the internet and email working on the network. Here is the link to get that done.. Good luck!
