    3g

    Advertisement



    The cust service rep was saying that their 3g is being rigorously tested in New York and other states right now and that they'd get it in full effect later in this year for the rest of us.
    He said their 3g net would be over 1700mhz and 2100mhz and that the bold can pick up 2100mhz for 3g.

    The Javelin won't have 3G? Then I guess I won't be getting that. If a BB come out for T-Mobile and don't have 3G then I guess I won't be upgrading anytime soon.

    ok, i'm a complete dumba$$ when it comes to all this CDMA, UMTS, EDGE, 3G, one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish.....................

    So TMO gets the Bold in Aug and it uses EDGE, why is that bad? 3G is faster i assume, but why would edge be the reason for us not to buy a bold? hell i've been using a pearl since it came out and it does everything i need it to do in a reasonable amount of time.

    please break it down for me??

    We could still buy the 9000 3G unlocked so we could use it in TMO but the 3G will not be functional right?

    Not if you only want information. If you want to operate an ebay business or see lots of videos/live feeds you need 3G.

    In that case it is - but my point is not everyone is really that bothered about 3G. Agreed it would limit market but still a fair amount of people out there that would be content not to have 3G - surly cheaper on 2G?

    Now that I am more inclined to believe...especially since the 8320 is down to $149.99 on TMO's website....

    A post I've seen on a UK forum (so this benefits UK based forum members) says that a T-Mobile UK advisor said that they're getting the Bold on the 21st (or was it 25th) of this month.

    Personally, I'd take it with a pinch of salt... just thought I'd mention it though.
