T-Mobile's First 3G Phone On Sale
Oct 11, 2007, 12:36 PM by (staff)
The Samsung T639, a quad-band GSM/EDGE and WCDMA 1700 clamshell, is on sale at select T-Mobile stores in New York City. The T639 was given 3G approval by the FCC in July and is the first phone to be compatible with T-Mobile's 3G network, even though the network is not yet up and running. T-Mobile won 3G licenses in the 1700 MHz band in the 2006 AWS auction and is currently working on building out its 3G network. The T639's availability may indicate that T-Mobile is preparing to launch its 3G network in some markets in the near future. When the network is launched the T639 will first immediately be able to take advantage of advanced voice coverage, and new data service will be added to the phone later.
