THOUGHT: T-Mobile U.S. - not a bad option at all for Inbound Roamers

Sure, for more advanced smartphone users in the U.S., T-Mobile might be the worst option to chose since the Seattle-based carrier still lacks support of UMTS, not to talk about HSDPA but for inbound roamers like me, T-Mobile isn't that bad. Especially if you use a smartphone like the Samsung SGH-i600 which supports triband GSM at 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz and singleband UMTS/HSDPA at 2100 MHz only.
Not sure what's wrong with AT&T's EDGE network here in Seattle but I don't get EDGE here (maybe it's available on 850 MHz only?) while T-Mobile's EDGE shows up everywhere:

While I still try to use my smartphone as less as possible for mobile data (the prices are simply insane - see my previous posting), T-Mobile is the way better option for me; especially because for some reasons Samsung isn't able to make quadband GSM and triband UMTS-compatible Windows Mobile smartphones.

Cheers ~ Arne
