Ok but I thought 1900 was EDGE and 1700 was 3g I was under the impression that edge and 3g (wcdma) were two different technoligies but I have no idea behind the theory of either type of network

Will all the TMO customers need new handsets in Vegas to get 3g service now that T Mob is using 1900 for 3g?

yourvoiceofreason said: I wasn't going to comment on this, but was it not decided that HSPA+ (tech significantly faster than 3G) could be called 4G? If that is the case, (which I know it is), why do people love to ignore that? People act as if that never happened. That being said, I don't know the answer to the original question and was hoping to read the answer...but oh well.. I do not want to start an argument but is ...

i know i have been harsh on TMOB's customer service skills in the past but to be fair in the real world you cannot expect people knowing their job is up in the air to focus on the task at hand properly i have been in that jam before and it is no fun it will bring an entire office down fast and everybody needs a paycheck

also remember TMO has some of the best prices for service so some other areas may suffer a bit like R&D or advertising so that they can provide better service just a thought i may be wrong
