Over a million unlocked iPhones roaming the T-Mobile network, the carrier is working on a Micro SIM of its own

Now in a spokespeople meeting it turns out that T-Mobile, which doesn't even officially offer the iPhone, has more than one million unlocked devices roaming the ether on its network too.
Most of them are iPhone 3GSs, the representative clarified, because of the regular SIM size, but he had also confirmed T-Mobile is working on a Micro SIM card module of its own, although he hadn't didn't specified when can we see it.
The T-Mobile person that relayed this data however said that a significant number of customers have already "taken the scissors" to adapt the regular-sized T-Mobile SIM card for their unlocked iPhone 4s. Asked when can we see the iPhone officially on T-Mobile's network, the carrier spokesman said there was nothing to announce at this time.
BTIG? Garbage... please, PA, please do not reference data from BTIG any more. This survey is so biased... and on top of that, they have simply "averaged" the total by assuming that AT&T and Verizon sell an even share of the handsets surveyed, and that an equal number of AT&T and Verizon stores were surveyed... the problem is that they do not claim that the number of AT&T stores surveyed was equal to the number of Verizon stores surveyed, and in fact without any data they have no way to prove it either. They are counting on the reader to automatically assume that all things are equal. This is just a cheap, deceitful, useless, meaningless extension of the BTIG "survey" from yesterday... see also: http://www.phonearena.com/news
Commentary says it all... read it and weep!

I know its just a survery Taco but im a Verizon Wireless rep and that survey atleast does not match my area, and im not even in a 4g area. Every 10 Smartphones that i sell 3 are iPhones, 6 are Android and 1 is Blackberry. I know friends of mine that work for Verizon in the Atlanta area and its a 4g market and their rate on iPhones is even lower. They sell 2 IPhones every 10 Androids. Now when Apple releases a 4g capable IPhone i bet its going to change all this around no doubt.

no they would not be able to they would just use the Edge because tmobiles 3g is on a diffrent band the att 3g and vise versa ie my mytouch 4g can get on att's network just fine but due to the fact the radio is programed to pickup att's 3g band as 2g/edge it will not go 3g and stays in edge the same with the iphone on tmob's 3g >_
