BB Bold 9700 does't pick up 3G (Unlocked T-Mobile)


I bought a BB Bold 9700 unlocked because a would have internet conexion, associate my e-mails to my cellphone, could chat with any other blackberry, and to have other advantages. Then I decided bought a BLACKBERRY because it's one of the best brands.

My BB Bold 9700 software was installed by T-Mobile, I ask me every day ¿Why a BLACKBERRY cellphone is not capable to work with 3G network in any company?, this is frustrating.

When I bought this cellphone, I Bought it because in the oficial Blackberry Web Page say that the cellphone is capable to work with 3G networks, and it's not true, in the web page did't say that it depends of the manufacturer.

I'm desapointed because I think that Blackberry is one of the best brands and is not possible that RIM do that. The cellphone should be capable to work 3G in any company, and if it is not pissible RIM must mention that.

I'm using EDGE network currently, and I don't know if my next cellphone will be a Balckberry.

Not all backberry models works on 3G after unlocking.
