    I know tmobile has different GSM frequencies then AT&T, but since both companies offer this same phone, will AT&t's 3g network work with anunlocked 3g tmobile phone?

    Different frequencies. Might as well get a AT&T branded one

    My friend confirmed it that it doesn't work. I shouldve asked him first before posting. Lol. I wanted to know because I found one on craigslist for cheap.

    edge would work perfectly .

    but t-mobile uses the 3g frequencies 900/1700/2100 Mhz instead of the typical 850/1900 MHz

    so 3g may not work. but you can connect it to work with att. for voice and edge data. no doubt about that.
