    I've been hearing that it won't work because of some quad-band thing. I know that it uses a micro sim card(easily made by cutting up a regular sim) but will it be able to be unlocked and be used with t-mobile edge/3G?

    It will almost certainly work for EDGE. The pentaband comment i made doesnt change that, but it opens the door for possible 3G compatibility. The thing is cell phone operators each operate their cell towers on certain frequencies or "bands". The more bands you have the wider range on carriers can work with your device.
