Our US 3G bands suck. I mean, AT&T offers UMTS or 3G using 850mhz(the old TDMA band) and 1900mhz, While T-mobile offers HSDPA (technically 3.5g part of the UMTS specification) using 1700MHz for uplink and 2100MHz downlink... and to screw it up even more.. the T-mobile one is not compatible with EU 3g phones (that i know of) because they're in a different range of 2100.

It would have been easier if our government could have allowed the European compatible spectrum to be used. If so we could use any EU Nokia, Samsung, etc.

Now, what we have is iPhone 3g only able to work on At&t (3g wise)

New versions of phones will need to be made for T-mobile.. So I guess we'll have phones with Tri-band UMTS, one for t-mobile, one for At&t and one for EU.
