I know many (most) GSM networks in the US claim that EDGE is 3G even though it doesn't technically have speeds fast enough to classify it as a 3G. (some call it 2.75G)

I am not entirely sure if the link I posted is the one that covers AT&T's WCDMA network, but I do know that a few years back AT&T along with Ericksson announced the launch of the first North American widespread WCDMA network. Haven't heard anything more about it since however.

EDGE is DEFINITELY NOT 3G. That shits not that fast. Especially compared to EVDO.

Anyways, if you want to spam me on my iPhone it's "myhackediphone@gmail.youknowwhatgoeshere"

Cingular has launched a high-speed network known as "BroadbandConnect," based on UMTS and High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA), to counter Verizon Wireless and Sprint's EV-DO networks. UMTS service was launched on December 6, 2005 in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, San Jose, San Diego, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Puerto Rico, Austin, Houston, Dallas, Detroit, Chicago, Boston, Baltimore and Washington D.C. Cingular expected to launch UMTS in all major metropolitan markets by the end of 2006, as of June 15th 2007, the service is available across much of the United States.

from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cingular

So yea, not going to be WCDMA.


On the right side of the page has a list of the evolution of cellular networks.

From what i was told...the apple iphone is the same material used as the ipod. Which means as crappy as the ipods are and how easily they get scratched why the hell would you want to have that same problem with your personal mobile phone. unless it really is "tough"

i'd still rather stick with a blackberry w/ evdo.

The screen is actually made of this really tough glass. The iPod isn't made out of that. Also, from everything I've read, the iPhone is surprisingly durable. People have like dropped it on the cement and shit like that on purpose and it was fine. Something that wouldn't happen with the iPod.

Too expensive for a device you can't expand as easily as palm os.

I still love my treo 650, i have over 500mb of apps for it so i can do almost anything. I do need a new ipod though my old one just got fried :( .

I demoed it at AT&T place the other day and found out they had it connected to the in-store wifi so the browser was faster that slow old edge. I disable wifi so safari was really slow :pirate:
