    Tmobile uses 1900 all over the USA but Would i lose any coverage if my phone has no 850 Mhz? Most of Tmobile phones have 850 Mhz these days.

    Yes, there are select areas where you would be able to Roam on Cing 800Mhz w/ a dual band fone.

    t-mobile is just in the process of allowing 850 roaming. they have opened a few areas up to 850 roaming, but much more is to follow. If you are satisfied with the current t-mobile footprint/roaming coverage on a 1900 phone, then you can get a 1900 only phone and your coverage would stay the same or get better over time as 1900 carriers build out their network more. a dual band handset would, i nthe future, give you significantly more coverage in some select areas, NJ/NYC not included as bobolito said.
