According to our site on T-mobile it has 850 but not UMTS. So no 3G on at&t which makes sense, why would T-mobile make a phone to work on a 3G which they don't use.

It does not have UMTS (WCDMA) 850.

Early prototype versions did, and an early draft of T-Mobile's spec sheet did say that, but the final version does not have it, and the final T-Mobile spec sheet shows that. I've confirmed this with both T-Mobile and Sharp.

The FCC approval does not include WCDMA 850, so even if you could somehow enable it, it would not be legal to use.

Furthermore, you would also need WCDMA 1900 for full AT&T 3G coverage. You'll only get partial coverage (spotty in some cities and none on others) with just WCDMA 850.

I have checked and double checked the information with t-mobile and the phone operates in the following Frequency Bands: UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA/GSM/GPRS/EDGE
UMTS Band I (2100)
Band IV
(1700/2100) Very Happy
