Default 3G on unlocked Storm?

Please Login to Remove!

I did a lot of research and found some older threads that say all one should get from an unlocked VZW storm on ATT is EDGE, not 3G....

It that still correct, or have things changed? How about the rogers unit? 9500 perhaps?

any way to get ATT 3G?

is "usa 3g" = "canadian 3g"...more specifically, does this problem apply to Rogers (in Canada) as well?

I got the answer to my question after doing a search. You will not get 3G and will be limited to Edge.

i am in europe right now, and my storm says 3G on it. the storm's got 3G reception only for the euro frequency. in the states, GSM carrier 3G frequencies vary....
