Do ATT and T-Mobile share GSM?

    I have just gotten a T-Mobile GSM phone. Of course it doesn't work in my house. I was wondering if ATT GSM would be any different. Does anyone know?

    I'm in West Orange, New Jersey.

    when Bobolito comes on he would know for sure.


    My guess there would be no, but I could be wrong on this.

    No, T-Mobile does not use AT&T in that area. Cingular and AT&T are a combined GSM network.

    If you want to stay with GSM, go with AT&T (Now Cingular), as they have a better 800Mhz Network in your area, as well as 1900 & free roaming over to T-Mobile when/if you lose their signal.
    Otherwise go with Verizon. I am sure that they should work fine for you in West Orange, although there is a "remote" chance your house is in a dead spot for all carriers.
