Isn't it possible that the FIC's main userbase, in Asia, doesn't have this band to worry about?  I live in the US but it seems like all of these comments are focused on *our* coverage, like we're the center of the world...

We're not, nor do we have nearly the largest possible sales base.

That aside, I too use TMobile and would like to be able to use the mobile here; my coverage on the maps looks good in my urban area, but any roadtrips etc would indeed put the phone out of use.
