    If its a tmobile phone it will run fine on tmobile no matter what. But an unlocked att branded phone will run on tmobile but will not run 3G, so you will have to use edge or wi-fi connection. The radio frequency they use for 3g is different between att and tmobile.

    thanks ... yhea i can get a bold 9700 on CL in good condition for about $200... i figure a bold on a month to month plan should hold me over until the blackberry 4g with a front face camera comes out.. then id sign a 2 year ....

    If your on T-mobile plan you wont need 4g, their HSPA+ is faster than 4g. They just haven't got it set up everywhere yet and don't have near the coverage of Verizon but its still faster when you are in an area that has it.
