Mine was bought directly from Google with no carrier branding or software. They first version that came out was only for T-Mobile, then they released a version for AT&T. Different frequencies for 3G. Could just be a software change I suppose, but as far as I know they can't be switched (certainly not by the end user in settings) by a software update. If Google could have released one phone that allowed a user to switch back and forth I would think that they would have. The US is messed up when it comes to comparability across our carriers, even the two GSM carries use different frequencies.

I think that in your case one has a software setting or some patch applied to limit the high speed mobile internet access to a specific carrier.
