    Sounds like you'll only get PCS if/when you can't get 1700/2100 at all. I guess we'll just need to wait and see.

    I would assume the network would open up, and you could force your phone on AT&T even in good T-Mobile coverage

    Some other devices that work on pcs /hspa+ 1900mhz

    Courtesy of Tmo News. Mod delete if already posted.
    If you want to see if your area is working on the new PCS HSPA+ network, you’ll need one of the following devices:

    Samsung Galaxy S 4G
    Samsung Vibrant
    Samsung Exhibit II 4G
    Samsung Galaxy S II
    HTC Amaze 4G
    HTC Radar 4G
    Nokia Lumia 710
    Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus
    Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
    T-Mobile Springboard
    Dell Streak 7
    Dell Inspiron Mini 10
    T-Mobile Sonic 4G Mobile Hotspot
    T-Mobile Rocket 3.0
    If you have a Samsung phone, you can check which frequency band you are using by going to the dialer and entering in the code “*#0011#”. There are also ways to temporarily and persistently disable and enable frequency bands from the software on Samsung phones. HTC users may need to look into the testing menu to find out how to check the band being used. We don’t know how to check on any other devices though, particularly the tablets, the laptop, the hotspot, and the data stick. They’ll work on the PCS HSPA+ network though.

    absolutely. This is presumably *not* going to be on every T-Mobile tower, and they have no obligation to provide good coverage on the PCS band, since their primary 3g will continue to be AWS. Also, it's unlikely that TMO customers will be getting nationwide in-market roaming (although it's possible). So if you have an iPhone 4S and there doesn't turn out to be good 1900mhz 3g coverage in your market + no in-market roaming, then you're basically SOL.

    Or will a customer risk expulsion for excessive roaming if they do this all the time for their iPhone?

    not particularly great. I haven't seen any evidence of 1900 being deployed here. Additionally, TMO and ATT are both spectrum limited here, so it's unlikely that ATT transferred over any of their AWS spectrum for this market either.

    Im in Houston, my GS II shows Band IV which is AWS. Anyway to try and force it to 1900, or would it automatically go over if it was available? It doesn't really matter to me, just curious.

    Who holds AWS in STL?
    Have you read the forum rules lately?
