Default TMobile data transfer speed

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everybody.
I am about to purchase a blackberry. Until now, I always carried a sprint modem and a laptop.

My voice plan is with TMobile , and their data transfer speed used to be very slow compared to Sprint and Verizon, at least for the laptop.

Is the speed acceptable while using a Blackberry, or should I consider changing to another carrier?

Thank you for your help!

T Mobile uses EDGE, very slow compared to Sprint.

It depends on what you use it for. I don't think you will see any speed difference with email, chat etc.. It would only show for media.
