the 2100 is used for upstream for att and tmo, the 1700 is downstream for tmo and 1900 is downstream for att... so, sure it accesses both, but not for downloading, only up/requests.

No, you, too, are reading this wrong.

AT&T W-CDMA 1900 is PCS 1900 MHz -- both uplink & downlink. AT&T W-CDMA 850 is Cellular 850 MHz -- both uplink & downlink.

T-Mobile W-CDMA 2100+1700 is AWS 2100+1700 MHz -- 1700 MHz uplink & 2100 MHz downlink.

And a handset never accesses just the uplink. A handset supports both uplink & downlink, or it does not support that spectrum band at all.
