cannot connect I5500 to AT&T 3G
Thanks for the tip, sicka01. I tried that method but it did not work. When I go to the WCDMA screen it lists the various bands but does not show the (FDD xxx) part on a given band. So, I must conclude that the I5500 hardware does not include the WCDMA 850 and 1900 bands. That is not the end of the world. The phone and GPS features work just fine. The AT&T "E" network is relatively slow (100 kbps +/-), but I do not have a great need to download data. Also, I can use the Wi-Fi data connection, if available.
My colleague's Captivate does have all of the bands. It connects to AT&T's "H" network. But, that phone is 3x the cost of the I5500.
