How can I use the Blackberry torch 9800 with the 3G t-mobile network?

Even t-mobile and ATT could not figure it out. For the last two days I have been on the phone with both customer service trying to use the 3G and still can not. Did anyone connect to the internet with T-mobile service and I am not talking about the WIFI, I mean the 3G network. The phone is unlocked I can even send and receive emails I just can not browse the net? If anyone has the answer let me know. Thanks

I am sorry but you will only be able to use the BB Torch on T-Mobiles EDGE network, as this device does not support T-mobiles 1700 Mhz 3G network.....

IR, shouldn't the Torch be able to work on Tmobile 3G? Tmobile uses 1700/2100, and the Torch supports 2100. My logic says, that in areas where there are 2100 towers, the OP should be able to receive 3G,

No, it will not work on T-Mobiles 3G network here in the US... 2100 only works in Europe and Asia. You need 1700 for use in NA, that which the Torch doesn't support.
