    Hey all,

    I'm interested in buying the T-Mobile G2, but being in Canada, the only 'official' way to get it, according to T-Mobile, is to cross the border and buy it in person.

    Since making that kind of trip is a bit overkill my other option is to buy it on eBay, which T-Mobile says they won't support. I've read that after buying a phone from T-Mobile, however, you still have to activate the IMEI.

    So my question is, how can I get this phone and use it in Canada? Is it enough to just be unlocked?

    Not sure why you'd get the G2 for Canada as it will only run on Edge on any carrier in Canada... better off to buy the Desire Z through bell or a 3rd party when it's available on 850/1900 bands on Nov 3rd...

    EDIT: My bad apparently the Tmobile G2 unlocked might work at full speeds on Mobilcity in Toronto.

    the G2 WILL run on 3G/HSPA+ as long as teh carrier supports both 1700 AND 2100 MHz AWS Band...

    Yes but none of the big carriers (Rogers, Bell, Telus) in Canada run 1700/2100. All three run 850/1900.

    The only two carriers in Canada I know of that use 1700/2100 are Wind Mobile and Mobilcity which is are smaller carriers only in populated cities (Mobilcity right now is only around Torono).
