EDGE v. 3G in US?

Two questions:

If you buy the HD2 now and use it over EDGE which US networks will it operate on?

Would you rather have EDGE or wait for 3G on TMobile -- you'll get 3G, but it is a smaller network?

Thanks for the thoughts -- I'm struggling to make a decision.

EDGE on this phone would work on AT&T or Tmobile, and you would get around 50-100kbps download speeds which IMO is usable but not ideal, now if you wait for the Tmobile 3G version as long as you are in a 3G city and they cover most major cities well, you will get around 3-4mbps download speed. which if you buy it unlocked for AT&T you will never get. If you plan on using wifi all the time then AT&T would work but Tmobile would be vastly cheaper.
