3G Coming to T-Mobile October 1st?

CSI fans will know it's often the tiniest piece of evidence which ends up solving the case. Take that notion and transplant it into the cellular world and the unsolved case of when 3G is coming to T-Mobile, and well... the case may just be solved.

The image above is of a piece of paper taped to the wall outside of a TMO meeting and indicates an October 1st, 3G rollout across 27 cities nationwide. Not the biggest piece of evidence in and of itself, but considering October 1st was the previously rumored date and it seems T-Mobile subscribers should start getting excited.

As for the 27 cities, they are... New York City, Austin, NJ and Long Island, Las Vagas, Minneapolis, Miami, Dallas, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, Denver, Detroit, Orlando, Kansas city, Atlanta, Los Angeles, New England, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, Seattle, Washington DC, San Francisco, Birmingham, Memphis, Tampa and Phoenix! I guess if you happen to be a T-Mobile loyalist and don't live in one of these cities, you may want to consider moving!

The only question now is, when is T-Mobile getting a 3G BlackBerry????

I would suspect sometime around the holidays and I would also suspect that RIM already new this information.
Bring on that "1700MHz" Bold!

Could that be the same date the Bold comes to T-Mo? ATT gets it in August, T-Mo 3 months later, isn't that what has been reported?

Well lets do some math.

lets say, att&t launches the bold tomorrow! amazing.

Add 3 months, so august, september, october. So the earlier Tmobile could launch would be november 1. And the bold isnt getting released any time soon on ATT. Hopefully by xmas for tmobile.

A guy on a forum im apart of that works for Tmo mentioned that in one of there meetings, it was said that TMO will NOT be receiving the Bold at all. Get mad if you want to, im just relaying what i was told.

The bold is coming out for all carriers. The only exclusive blackberry will be the touchscreen thunder. My girlfriend works for tmobile. So for all these naysayers the 1700 mhz bold will help sell tmobiles new 3G network.

It just shows how behind the times T Mobile and the other wireless companies are. Verizon has been 3G for a while and is about to make the jump to 4G or perhaps LTE. So if they do Big Deal.

I wish i would have waited to make the switch then. I just switched from sprint after being a loyal customer for 10 years. T-mobile has great service. I wonder if they will to the free 3g upgrade like Apple/At&T did when they launched the new 3g iphone???? can anyone provide any insight?
