Re: Important Clarification - phones that will work in the AWS band
Cingular purchased some UMTS 1700MHz spectrum in certain locations. That means that when they build out that network, people who have current Cingular 3G phone with the UMTS/HSDPA (850/1900MHz), will have to get new phones from Cingular when Cingular makes 3G service with the 1700MHz band available to the public, in order to take advantage of their new network band. Same with T-Mobile customers when, T-Mobile launches 3G service.
Sort of. Except the fact that the current Cingular 3g phones include GSM 850.
Thanks for the great article, Rich!
