    Hi there. I'm looking for an older (bigger) t-mobile phone for my parents. I was thinking of getting Nokia 5190 or 6190 of ebay, where they sell for about $20. However I went to nokiausa.com and found out that these phones only support GSM 1900. I've heard from tmobile folks that in different markets tmobile uses at&t & cingular networks.. I'm not sure which one, but I belive either at&t or cingular work of GSM 850/900 MHz somewhere.


    My tmobile service will be used mostly in in NE region (Philly,MD,NJ, New York) and Florida.

    Is there a way to find out where these frequencies are used and whether tmobile have roaming agreement with this company in these markets?

    Thanks alot.

    I could have sworn Tmobile only had roaming on GSM 1900 cariers.

    Am i wrong?

    Currently, TM have 1900 roaming agreements only with AT&T and Cingular. With Cingular, the roaming is in the Carolinas. The best place to get a coverage map right now is in a TM corporate store, as the website isn't updated yet with some roaming in the midwest.

    The AT&T agreement is generally rural interstate highways in the midwest, here is the agreement.

    In the areas you list you will use TM's own coverage.
