Re: totally off subject but...
I can tell you, however, that T-Mobile is strictly 1900 mhz. Now, it does have roaming agreements with some companies to use the 850 mhz frequency in some areas, but anytime you are using T-Mobile's actual towers, you are utitilizing 1900 mhz. The closest portrayal of a 1900 mhz coverage map would be T-Mobile's prepaid coverage map, although that does include SOME 850 mhz.
I've often wondered myself how much Cingular relies on 850 mhz. I have an unlocked Nokia 6230i (the best phone ever! ), which only has European triband frequences, i.e., no 850 mhz, and I've thought about getting a Cingular prepaid SIM card just to see what kind of coverage I'd get. I've been using it with T-Mobile and it's worked just fine.
