T-Mobile Now Offering 3G Access To Some iPhone 4S Users

Apple and T-Mobile have yet to the final the agreement between both companies on the hardware of the iPhone 4S release on the carrier, and to support the lower-end carrier band speed. As the both companies have yet to define their network, it reports that new iPhone 4S has been also not compatible with the T-Mobile network. It appears that users have not limited their selves according to the companies’ relation, and start hitting the network with manual cutting of the micro-SIM cards, as the T-Mobile announced that they have more than 1 Million iPhone users on their network, without having the legal contract with Apple.


With the launch of iPhone 4S, Apple has upgraded the baseband of its network chip with higher bands which makes the T-Mobile network as incompatible with the iPhone 4S and binds the users to stay on the EDGE network while using the iPhone 4S. As the Apple has used the 1700/2100 MHz bands in the iPhone 4S for higher data networks, T-Mobile splits out from the list. The folks over, TmoNews added few words in the report and claimed that T-Mobile has just started upgrading its network to the latest bands and start supporting the latest iPhone 4S bands but still rarely, on some occasions not available at all locations. Which means that now there are few people in the country with having iPhone 4S on T-Mobile with 3G network in their pockets, and using their device without any fear.

According to the report, it seems that T-Mobile also wants to get itself in the iPhone powered network, and to change its network slogan of Android from the iPhone.
