Tech Anyone else heard the T-Mobile/IPhone rumors?

I just posted about this in another thread... but, was wondering if anyone else had heard about this?

I read a bunch of places online that t-mobile is the likely carrier of the IPhone once AT&T loses its exclusivity.

Apparently, many people thought it would be Verizon... but, their network is not compatible with the IPhone without lots of changes being made, whereas T-Mobile's 3G network is compatible the way it is right now.

Anyone else hear this? I've heard the date November 2010 being thrown around... and, even saw what seems to be a leaked T-Mobile ad for the IPhone. I SOOO hope this is true! :yahoo:

This is where I heard it from, and I don't think they are rumors....I forget how long, but the the contract with AT&T was only for a length of time and it either has or is about to expire, and Apple is exploring their options due to the complaints from users about AT&T's network.
