It's just the GSM 850 band. I honestly don't see this effecting much of anyone. For someone to lose service completely, they'd need to be using a phone that only supports GSM in the 850 MHz band and not 1900 MHz. That pretty much pegs it as a foreign, non-AT&T phone since any AT&T phone I've ever seen has supported both. And it would also need to be 2G only, since if it supports the 3G bands, it would be able to get coverage that way.
