Aren't they arguing against it?

Or maybe it's just not worth Apple's time to change the radio design and get the device re-certified by the various governmental agencies just for T-Mobile's nonstandard 3G, when 4G is the future.

Except AT&T's LTE frequency is the same as T-Mobile's 3G frequency, so Apple will have to add it eventually, anyway.

So the 4G iPhone would be a perfect time to add that, not 3G unless there's a boatload of incentive$.

Why? Apple has only about 4% of the phone market, and WRT the smartphone market, Android phones outsell iPhones at better than 2 to 1.

T-Mobile may do very well sticking with the better-selling phones.

I do, but I don't have any experience using it as a phone. I figured that's what he meant.

Used, to be, yeah. That was just secondary, though.

I won it. Couldn't swing 70 a month for service when it was new, so I couldn't use it. I was going to then use it on Centennial (remember them? ), but they got gobbled up by AT&T. Now it's so much later, that I may as well just keep my current phone (going on seven years old and still rocks) and wait until (a 'not when but if' scenario) an iPhone's plan is peanuts to my income or until they don't make data forced and get a then-new iPhone.

Until then, I'll just keep my LG VX5300. All I need is telephony. I never text, and I'd have no use for data where there isn't Wi-Fi (pretty sure about that, at least). Everything else I need, I do on my iPhone.

And if I do get a future iPhone? I may just keep carrying this one around. It's a piece of history. A Day One 2007 4GB iPhone. As the shortest-lived Apple product ever, it's a collector's item.
