I'm not saying anything except what I posted, which is to pass along what T-Mobile posted on twitter back in July. No more, no less. But note Raptor was asking about BlackBerrys at the time, and T-Mobile was responding about their current 3G devices and not necessarily any 3G device.

I don't have a clue as to the answer to the second question.

EDIT: I looked again at what I retweeted. T-Mobile used the word compatible. So, "work" on HSPA+ may simply mean "work" as opposed to "not work." I need to find the original question that T-Mobile was responding to.

EDIT #2: Ok. Here is the exchange from back in July--

From @Raptor464 . . .

@TMobile_USA will my BlackBerry Bold 9700 be compatible with the new HSPA+ network? Or will it be restricted to normal 3G speeds?
and the reply as retweeted by me . . .

TMobile @Raptor464 Our current 3G devices are compatible with our HSPA+ network ^AT
For what it's worth.
