AT&T Wireless Defrauding Consumers
i thought att 3g is already available in san fran long ago?
i'm on t-mo so i'm not familliar with att's 3g. if they're just launching 850mhz 3g this time in san fran, does that mean all this time their phones in the bay area uses 2100mhz 3g?
does this mean you can still connect to 3g eventhough your phone doesn't support 850mhz unlike t-mo that needs both 2100 mhz and 1700mhz?
i got counfused with what band att is using....
