I was just playing with my X1, and the 3G icon popped up next to the signal strength. It went away after a little while, but is this (X1i) compatible with the US Tmo 3G network? That would be a pleasant suprise.

Mine never did that, I'm in a 3g area. I dont think it's compatible with Tmobile 3g

Perhaps a dumb reply but is it possible the phone connected for a short period to AT&T and then dropped due to you not being a subscriber?

T-Mobile is using 2 different 3G frequencies, one for upload, another for download...the 2100 band is the same as part of AT&T's 3G network, but 1700 is not.

It's quite possible the phone was just detecting availability of 2100, but your T-Mobile sim card (and data plan) won't allow for actual usage of the network...
