According to this article, the pentaband radio chip isn't only hardware factor that will determine whether the iPhone 5 will work on TM's AWS band. The article seems optimistic that all necessary components will be present... leaving just the commercial speed bumps in the way.
If it's pentaband, that moves me closer to getting it. However, one of the concerns that I had about Siri, but was unsure of the facts of the matter, seems to be confirmed in an article in the Washington Post today. One of the strengths of the iPhone to me was the voice recognition and seamless operation for voice dialing. If you take the simple action of voice dialing and make that a data function that requires communication with remote servers, you have made a simple function unnecessarily complex and subject to failure more often.
I'm rambling on here, but I guess that it's still on topic somewhat, so it should be OK.
if they made an iPhone with a 4.3" screen i'd consider it but still doubtful i'd pull the trigger.
Not necessarily but I'm considering to get one.
T-Mobile thinks the iPhone is a good device and we’ve expressed our interest to Apple to offer it to our customers.

That's a dated statement. Things are changing since the end of the merger.
NO, No No, Iphone is a waste of time, you can do so much more with an Android phone that a iphone which i also do have, I cannot see why all those people flock to Apple for an iphone. I use the iphone for my job and i still do most of my business on my Sensation and Galaxy S2.
Don't bother wasting you money breaking your contract because you pay the ETF and then you still have to pay what you owe on your final bill and also you have to go pay the next carrier whatever it cost to start up and the price of the phone.
two, three years ago i was on the verge of jumping ship to iPhone and paying more than my grandfathered t-mo plan. But then i was introduced to my myTouch, and now upgraded to my gs2, and iPhone is no longer in my thoughts. i do like very much the iphone interface and the smooth user experience, and think android still has a long way to catch up with this kind of snappiness. but i've become very accustomed to my widgets and customizations that i simply cannot part ways with android. So no, even if t-mo gets an iphone now, i'll still be firmly in the android camp, loving my android robot!
Exact same for me! The myTouch series was great! From time to time I think about the iPhone, but then I see my Galaxy S II and, as a joy-inspired tear rolls down my cheek, I forgive myself for thinking about deserting.
A friend of mine went from Android to iPhone because that's what her work gave her, and she's constantly frustrated by what it won't do. And that's coming from one of those cheapo LG Optimus phones. Just the other weekend, she was trying to purchase my e-book for her Kindle app, and that app doesn't have any way to buy books. At least not that any of us could find. (BTW: that book is Endangered Species by R. Jaylan Phoenix and it's available for Nook and Kindle for $2.99) So the iPhone may have a reputation for being easier to use, but that sometimes comes from having less options/functions to choose from.
Love the little promo Jaylan! ; -) I will make that my first official purchase on my Nook...
Ha, yeah. I was just going to tell the story of the iPhone's Kindle app lacking a store, because I hate shameless promos in forums, but I decided that since it was related, and as long as I stopped short of posting actual links, it would be okay.
The iPhone Kindle App used to have a way to purchase through the app, but an update removed that ability. I can't imagine why!
Always nice to hear their motto is NO COMPETITION ALLOWED!!! Congrats on the book jaylanphnx! I'll buy it tonight on my wife's Kindle Fire!

I can tell you exactly why. They were told if they didn't remove it that they'd have to remove their app from the Apple App Store.
Meh... it's Apple's sandbox.. they can do what they want...
