Default How many versions of the 9700?

Please Login to Remove!

Are there separate versions of the Bold-2 for T-Mobile and AT&T? I know that their 3G frequencies are different, so my question is: Does the Bold-2 support all 3G frequencies are are there different models for the various providers/3G frequencies?

There is one model for t-mobile with only t-mobile 3G frequencies (it won't work on any other network 3G).
And another model for AT&T, Rogers etc with the "standard" 3G frequencies which will work on any of those networks (and UK networks I believe, as well as some european [WIND ITA it doesnt]) but won't work on T-mobile 3G.

The T-Mobile 9700 supports UMTS bands 1, 4, and 8. It should work in Europe since 2100 (band 1) and 900 (band 8) are European 3G frequencies. UMTS Band 4 is the 1700 AWS frequency T-Mobile uses. It also supports standard quad band GSM/EDGE.
