    It will only work on 2G (EDGE) with T Mobile USA. I also have T Mobile and am desperately waiting for this phone.

    I think its a big advantage for buying unlocked version...
    1..No Carrier Bloatware
    2..Faster Updates...

    This may be a touchy topic because what some see an advantage others might see as a disadvantage but it's nice to weigh out the options.

    -local support from your actual carrier and more willingness to work with you if there's issues with service and device (I recently just received a MASSIVE discount towards any new device even though I am far from early upgrade, due to multiple swap-outs of my phone)
    -insurance on your device
    -depending on how the merger concludes you may see additional cell coverage through added bands and roaming
    -the look and feel of the phone may change (I.e. the 4 capacatative touch sensors that the U.S. is accustomed to)
    -upgraded features or additions to the stock user interface for those that don't root and modify. Example: the Optimus 2x vs the G2x added HSPA+, music player and stock "vanilla" u. I.
    -if there's issues that turn out to be hardware issues they are generally found and fixed by the time it rolls out over here
    -you can use an early upgrade if elligible and save money. Your personal option.

    These are all the things I can think of at the moment
