    Will any of the AT&T spectrum or roaming facilitate the use of the iphone?

    I saw somewhere that UMTS 2100 might be involved.

    How soon will the merger breakup gifts come online?

    I've heard reports that in some markets HSPA+ is already available on 1900 Mhz which would be iPhone compatible (as well as other handsets that use 1900/2100 combination.)

    I thought the roaming arrangement was not supposed to begin until next year sometime.

    What I've heard has nothing to do with the proposed new roaming agreement but rather that for whatever reason T-Mobile decided that in some areas there is enough spectrum that they can run HSPA+ on PCS (1900 Mhz) rather than on just the AWS (1700 Mhz.)

    Although I am not an expert on mobile phone spectrum, it's nice to see they can have GPRS/EDGE, 3G and HSPA all running on 1900. :)
