Am I reading this wrong...


It's tri-band 1700/1800/2100 HSPA. Those are not the bands that AT&T's HSDPA network operate on...so how exactly does this have the capability of accessing AT&T'S 3G network?
In addition to Quad-Band GSM...
typo. my bad. fixed.
it supports band I/II/IV UMTS
finally.....the very first unlocked phone for T-Mobile 3G
how sad..... ☹️
Can this be used as a phone as well?
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.
i live in ATT 1900mzh band! so i dont really care about 850mzh 3G. i might miss 850mzh 3G places far away from me, but how often do you travel? haha

Hell yea...

I would love this phone...windows mobile is nice and you can do so much on it, plus it's so easy to tether to your laptop for phone-as-modem use
