    This is the response I got from T-mobile on twitter regarding whether the dev edition will work --> T-Mobile USA ‏@TMobileHelp 19h
    It looks like it should work in areas that have been refarmed, but it will not have the same coverage as a T-Mobile branded phone.

    So I basically have to get the GPE if I want to attach to TMO on the WCDMA side (the PCS refarm hasn't really taken off over here). I was really hoping for a phone with all the UMTS and LTE bands. ALL OF THEM MUAHAHAHAHAHA.

    Really REALLY lame of HTC for not having the Developer Edition support all the bands like the GPE. WTF

    So for those of us who do not know the details of exactly what this means? Will the GPE be fully compatible with T-mobile and if not, what wont work?

    thanks,
