Not sure if this problem exists anymore, or if Apple has included the other GSM bands since then... But it looks like the only UMTS/HSPA you're going to get with an iPhone4 on T-Mo would be if you're in a 2100 area. Otherwise, you're stuck with 2G. That hurts unless you've got wifi wherever you go.
