    So the answer, Muddy41, is YES!

    Thanks Alpha for a true straight up answer. I appreciate it. I am currently looking at getting the N1 but I also have a great deal on the table for a brand new iPhone 3GS 32G. So I am doing the needed research about the Nexus before I decide which way to go.

    I am a T-Mobile user. I was leaning toward the iPhone so that I could get rid of my iPod Touch and use only 1 device for both phone and music. I do love my iPod that and I am having serious issues deciding which to buy.

    Thanks

    Maybe I can shine a light on your issue.

    The main issue you're going to be looking at with the 3GS on the T-Mobile network is a lockout of 3G.

    Effectively putting you into perm-edge network. While it's not the slowest connection out there... it's a severe handicap when compared to speeds associated with 3G on the N1.

    Also, for those of you curious...

    Yes, T-Mob is aware of PDANet's existence.

    Yes, T-Mob has policies in effect that limit in-store and customer care interactions regarding phoneasmodem or tethering.

    How much use should we be concerned of lockout? I'm streaming music on the phone 8 hours/day, 40 hours/week while at work and am on PDA net an hour a week only.

    Should I be concerned?

    Locked out as in iPhone will only connect on EDGE on TMobile...

    As far as normal data usage no problem. I average 5-10gb a month and no problem, unless you're a torrent, p2p, or hosting a server using 100+ gb monthly there might be a problem.

    What's the magic number of gb data download... no one knows!

    As stated above, TMobile does have a policy against tethering, dont abuse don't worry. If they (Tmobile) believe your abusing they'll "Throttle" your connection until the beginning of the next billing cycle.
