T Mobile is one of the worst coverage in the UK, please tell me this is some marketing gimmick to up the price with Voda...

Anybody else got any thoughts on this aspect?

That's a shame. T-Mobile has excellent service and pricing here in the US.

US v UK

As is the case in a lot of instances, the US has superior service to the UK.
Pricing can be an issue too. The major players in the UK are Vodafone, O2 and Orange.

for example - a gallon of 'gas' or petrol in the US is approx $2.20 - $2.40 (last time I was over the pond) and in the UK it is £0.95p per litre which works out to £4.40 (ish) a gallon, which at todays exchange rate, is approx $8.80!

Sorry, I'm ranting now.... ;-)

Wow, that's pretty interesting. When I was over in Europe, I did notice a difference, but never really converted it and thought of it that way. And yeah, I did see O2 and Vodafone all over the place there.

I thought Vodafone was carrying it in the UK though. Hmmm...

You sure it's TMobile?

$3/gal is still cheap compared to other parts of the world. I think the first rumblings were that O2 would carry it. No one seems to know now.

I understand that. I was just letting him know that the US was catching up with the rest of the world on gas prices.

According to this site the iPhone will be avaliable on 02 AND Vodafone in the UK. Not sure where they got their info from.

Yep. I researched the UK carrier out of curiosity. Most sites said 02, but some said theta there is confusion and it is undecided/ unannounced at this point.
