    From what I understand because T-mobile's 3G runs on a different level of the spectrum(I belive its 2100mhz as opposed to at&t's 1900mhz)and that is why you can only get edge. Is this correct, or is there a way to get 3G data? sorry, my friend asked if he could and I have never unlocked my phone so would have no idea. any help would be great!

    He would have to get a t-Mobile hotspot device, and use the iPhone on wifi

    Ignore the post above. Yes you are correct. He can only use edge on T-Mobile because of the data frequencies
