Tmobile Strikes Again!

At least for voice, anyway...I don't think the 7710's EDGE capability will work too well on Tmobile's network. But it should be backwards compatible with GPRS anyway, right?

EDGE is nearing the end of the testing stage from what I have heard thru the "pinkvine". :-)

Who knows, it might come sooner than the June '05 tentative date.

I'm looking forward to EDGE.

It'll silence the naysayers...and I hate naysayers.

Why is it taking so long for t-mo to deploy EDGE...ATT had it, and Cingular has it allover their network? What's t-mo's problem?

They're following their corporate motto (at least for the U.S.) of "wait and see". I think because of the debt load Tmobile incurred building out their initial network and offering great plans, they've had to be cautious about adding competitive services such as EDGE while they added customers and curbed their debt. I think you'll see them become more competitive once their financial picture improves.

The edge on t-mobiles network is good, it runs at about 350k or so!

Yep - its definately backwards compatible with GPRS. Its on the spec list. Roll on Edge, though!! Using the web on this thing will be fantastic.
