    so i heard from a friend who works for t-mobile that they aren't getting the bold but they will get the javelin beginning of next year. The reason for the post was that he found out from his manager that unlocked bold's wont work with the t-mobile 3g network because t-mobile is running on a different frequency than att network. does anyone have any insight on this?

    Thats been a known fact from day one. The Bold will work just fine on EDGE, but yes NO 3g due to frequency differences.

    as far as the current model of the Bold goes - - it does not have the required data frequency to work on T-Mobile's flavor of 3g

    Current Bold = 850 and 1900

    T-Mobile's AWS 3g network = 1700 upstream/2100 downstream

    There are other issues with an unlocked Bold listed in various threads that you'll find by doing a search. Issues include things like the BlackBerry Browser will only work on WiFi and not EDGE......no MMS......and other various issues......I suggest looking at those threads in the Bold area.
