Don't know if anyone was completely aware of what's going on inside the carrier, but all data crippled AT&amp;T devices are receiving 3G now.&nbsp;

Reasoning: T-Mobile is offering the IPhone in the spring for full price, and before that happens, the towers had to be modified/reconfigured.

AT&amp;T uses the evolved edge frequency, whereas T-Mobile had that frequency reserved like it was supposed to do, even though they don't employ the bolt-on unless you're seriously out in the middle of nowhere. Now I'd presume eEDGE is considered obsoleted since T-Mobile is moving their 3G frequencies in it's place.&nbsp;

According to T-Mobile, it could take up to a year to stabilize, but I've already been getting 3G service in various spots and my apartment seems to be near a renovated tower.

Seems to me like there may be a carrier war of sorts soon, what are your opinions?
