    So how long do you think it will take to get the magic in the US. Unlocked of course, but standard would be really nice :D. I believe that the Vodaphone network is that of a GSM network, and if that's so, it can be unlocked and would be compatible with other networks........ such as T-Mobile! Whatcha think?

    T-mobile uses a different type of 3g, so you would be connecting for data via Edge or wifi.

    That's not correct. They started in NYC and I think they are in 30 some markets now. I am in the Boca/Ft Lauderdale area and have pretty good 3g coverage. Someone posted an interview with a t-mo bigwig the other day, and in it he implied that T-mo would be in most major markets by years end. He did not give specifics for any cities though.

    The Minneapolis / St Paul metro area has great 3G coverage.
