Cingular will not use the 2100MHz band. That is the governments freq here in the US. The 2100MHz band in being used for overseas cell phones.

Unlike services offered by some wireless companies, BroadbandConnect does not drop a session when the user is outside the coverage area.Cingular said the laptop modem cards are dual-band HSDPA/UMTS (Universal Mobile Telephone System) (850/1900Mhz) and backward compatible with EDGE (Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution) and GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) in four bands (850/900/1800/1900Mhz), so the session is seamlessly transferred to the company’s nationwide EDGE network or a data network of one of its roaming partners.<

The phone works on WCDMA and all four GSM bands. It says so in the specs before you enter this forum. READ.

check the cingular news releases... they are going to use wcdma 2100 for data, as well as the regular freq for voice.. there are already several phones slated for release that use the wcdma as well as at least one pc card.

Cingular can not use the 2100MHz band, since the government uses that freq, here. Cingular will use the UMTS amd HSDPA in the 850 and 1900MHz bands, not 2100MHz.

According to smcgarvey6's statement, he read the specifications. Maybe you should have read his post more thoroughly.

From what intel I could scrounge up, Cingular is using the 1900Mhz band for their UMTS network. (WCDMA is only being used as an acronym here in the states, as Quallcomm is pushing for it).

However, and this is still kind of vage until next week @ CES, Cingular will be using 1900Mhz AND 2100Mhz in different parts of the USA.

W-CDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) is the air interface encoding scheme that is used by UMTS, it is used as an acronym all over the world.

>However, and this is still kind of vage until next week @ CES, Cingular will be using 1900Mhz AND 2100Mhz in different parts of the USA.

As mentioned in other replies, the 2100 mHz is allocated for other things in the US, Cingular will not be using it. IIRC, it is used for satellite communications and some is reserved.

It would be great if Cingular would push to get this reallocated, but prob...
