    the 8700g is 2g only. You will have to get the 8707 for that.

    More along the lines of 2.5G. 3G would be HSDPA, followed by W-CDMA later on.

    Re: can 8700g work with 3g network?

    Anybody actually seen a marked improvement with the "EDGE" network using it as a teathered modem? I actually upgraded my 7100 series to this one for that very reason, and so far have not been toooooo impressed. Seems like the coverage is getting better though, but no major shakes on the teathered speed.

    HSDPA is a hack to the 3G packet structure and is billed as 3.5G. W-CDMA is the bearer for UMTS which is 3G and what an 8707 uses.
