Duluth, Minnesota / Superior, Wisconsin metro area with over 100K population.

Currently, our carriers are

at&t (from Dobson/ Cell One merger)
Verizon
Sprint
Unicel (part of RCC, purchased by VZW)

So, where is T-Mo? ๐Ÿคจ

Why would you want them? Five miles out of town you would have NO signal. The reason they are not there is it would cost them a fortune in roaming agreements to AT&T. Another reason is license territories. They do not own spectrum rights in this area. I know this area. Stay with VZW (sigh) or AT&T.

More options, that is why.

Unless you how I can get an HTC G1 or Samsung Behold unlocked to work on at&t.

Getting those phones unlocked is not a problem at all. Codes are available online, or you can go to a place like World of Wireless in Minneapolis and they can do it on the spot. The problem is going to be to get the data to work correctly. More than likely the only thing you will be able to do is talk and text on the phone and possibly use the WIFI if the phone is capable. Unlocked phones are usually more of a pain then they are worth.

I would disagree with that for those that are tech-savy enough to be able to set up an unlocked phone efficiently. I've read many forum posts by other users who would never even consider upgrading through their carrier and sign a contract as a result. Instead, they purchase a phone directly from the manufacturer at full price and have it unlocked. Different needs and wants for different people. ๐Ÿ™‚

T-Mobile doesn't have PCS licenses, but they go hold an AWS Great Lakes license for the area. So it's whenever T-Mobile decides they want to expand in that part of Minnesota & Wisconsin. They're already working on expanding their AWS network in Madison Wisconsin, where they don't hold any PCS licenses.

I work for a T-Mobile authorized dealer. For the Duluth, Minnesota / Superior, Wisconsin metro area you are in our roaming coverage in which we roam off other towers like AT&T. Once you go near Rt 35 you start to have coverage from what I see on my screen.
