I'm disappointed too that this phone doesn't have 3g. I don't understand why GSM providers keep coming out with EDGE Blackberry phones, when Verizon and Sprint are putting EVDO on theirs. T-Mobile really needs a good 3g Blackberry. The Samsung Highlight's and G1 phones just don't cut it.

Yeah bro, I don't get it either. Maybe BB doesn't want to put in another radio for us Tmobile people? That's what it seems like at least.

Wi-fi is a nice addition, but most people aren't always in areas where they have access to it. Even if I had hotspot, i'd use my mobile internet more on the road than at home. At least i'm fortunate to be in an area where there aren't many T-Mobile users, so my EDGE speeds are a little more tolerable. But yeah, it's time they get their act together with this. I'm hoping the gentleman who commented underneath us is correct, that there's one coming soon!

where i live is kinda a big city. lots of ppl n stuff n lots of phone traffic for all networks lol 3G is pretty good for t-mo, but they don't have that many 3G phones. and EDGE is kinda obsolete. BB GET WIT THE PROGRAM!!!

Yea Tmobile needs a 3g BB, probably in September (Onyx). But having a device like the 8520 in the lineup is ok too, for people that just want to read emails, and who don't really watch silly youtube videos in their mobile browser.
