    Can anyone confirm that a unlocked G1 works or will work on the ATT 3G network? The T-mobile 3G network is not coming to Indianapolis anytime soon so I was hoping to get a unlocked G1 and stay on ATT...I heard it does and doesn't...just wanted a confirmation to put me in the right direction. Thanks

    crap... any other compatible carriers or am I just %@#!ed? I don't understand why anyone would care that much about an unlocked G1 if you can't use it for any other carrier...

    It'll still function on EDGE and Wifi but no 3G for any other carrier in the USA. T-Mobile only bought spectrum for 3G on certain freq. that AT&T doesn't use.

    Be on the lookout though there are already chipsets being produced that work on both sets of the spectrum so there will be universal 3G handsets produced soon, but just not the G1
