Will the 850 Wcdma band work in the US?


Aug 13, 2007, 10:49 AM
I know that At&T uses both 850 and 1900 wcdma for 3G here in the United States. I am not sure if one is used more than the other. Has anyone tested this device on at&t's 3G network?

I believe it does, i just read on one of the ATT forums that someone ordered this phone.

I ordered one and it should be here monday. I'll let you guys know how the 3g works.

No 3G will not work in US....only in Australia.

I thought we use umts 850/1900 or is it just 1900? It must because because I just got my 6120 and the 3g doesn't work Eh?

you are correct...US uses 1900. There are a few places where you may get lucky as there are a few places in US that uses 850 but very rare. the 850/2100 is set for Australia 3G.

I think the reason is most of at&t voice is on the 850 and it uses the 1900 for data, in the few areas its the opposite, it should work.

All I can say is that when I surf the net, the little signal strength indicators changes from "3G" to "3.5G" and it is much faster than my RAZR2 V9.

I live/play in the Palm Beach/Broward county area and my AT&T service on this phone has been spectacular.
