    Trying out a vibrant. The T-Mo rep told me it used the hspa plus network. Now i read the the first hspa plus phone for T-Mo will the HTC vision/vibrant. Was i lied to?
    It is a bit of a moot point, if the vision/vanguard has a bigger screen and real keyboard i will be re boxing the vibrant and limping the G1 into september.

    For what it's worth, my myTouch Slide has a reference to HSPA+ in the owner's manual. When using that, instead of an "E" or "3G", it will display an "H" above the signal strength bars.

    The vibrant can use hspa+, but it's not technically a hspa+ phone. Im not exactly sure what that means, but i have read that many times.

    From what I've heard, the handset supports HSPA 7.2 which can take advantage of HSPA + but doesn't support HSPA+'s speed of up to 22 Mbit/s.

    The owner's manual (pdf) says that you should see an E, a 3G, or an H depending on the network you're connected to. It's on page 22 of the pdf. (shows as page 18 of the manual)
