    can someone purchase a 3g unlocked curve and then activate on tmo and use the 3g network once the network is up? would all data features be available being that it isnt tmo branded?

    There is no such 3G Curve you speak of...

    Any "3G" Curve is a CDMA Curve on EVDO... and you cannot use those on a GSM network!

    So, no

    Even if it were possible. It would depend on whether or not TMO has a 3G network in your area. No point in having a 3G device if there is no network to use it on.

    when tmo opens 3g in chicago, will there be a software upgrade to make the curve 3g

    You cannot simply add 3g with software. It is a hardware feature. You cannot modify the software to transmit and receive the frequency in which TMOs 3g network operates on.

    So what is the main difference between EVDO and 3G? isn't VZW updating their 3G network right now?
