Here in the US there are two Bold 9700 variants - the AT&T one which has support for 850/800/1900 MHz UMTS and the T-Mobile one which has support for 1700/900 MHz UMTS.
I am curious to find out which variant is going to be released by international carriers. Is there a third variant?
- Is it safe to assume that no matter what variant you use, it is really the US where it matters (so you can roam 3G either on T-Mo or ATT)?
- For example in Canada, which device have Rogers, Telus and Bell released? I think Roger's website says its the AT&T variant.
- How about Orange and Vodafone in the UK?
- How about T-Mobile UK and Germany?
Also - it appears from reading these threads that both variants are capable of doing UMA but it is carrier dependent. Is that true?
9700 on 6.0.0.something, BES 4.1 on Exchange, BIS (AT&T)
