    Trying to sell my N1 on eBay and i have to specify what one it is:

    The choice is:
    I got mine from google.com/phone shop when it was first released. Is there a method to find out which i have?

    I thought they were all the same. They're all unlocked, all quadband - that's for sure. The Technology specs are stupid... they all have GSM/GPRS/EDGE/HSDPA. I think the only difference would be the color, but again... I thought they were all the same.

    (We don't want any white crap, thank you very much!:p:D Leave that to iCrap)

    Thanks for the reply, I didn't realise you could get it in different colours, mine looks like this: http://img.labnol.org/files/google-nexus-one.jpg

    So what you are saying is, I can chose any of the three in eBay and shouldn't get any problems?

    There were at least two different N1s sold in the US. One for T-Mobile, one for AT&T. Both with work for voice on either, it's the 3G data that's different. Meaning if you choose the wrong one, you'll only get Edge data speeds.

    My T-Mobile compatible one has a P/N of 99HKE002-00 (you'll find this under the battery).

    Didn't know about the different colors.

    Isn't that carrier-specific though? Why would they invest in 2 different hardware versions of the same phone, and why would we not hear about it after all these years? 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.

    Mine looks just like that. I think you can pick any of the 3 choices.

    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.

    As of March 16, 2010, there are two versions of the Nexus One.[70] Both versions of the Nexus One cover most major GSM and 3G providers in the US, Europe and Asia. On both phones, the GSM radio frequencies covered are 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, and 1900 MHz. The original Nexus One (PB99100) also came along with UMTS frequency bands 1 (2100 MHz), 4 (1700 MHz), and 8 (900 MHz),[71] allowing it to access 3G throughout Europe, as well as on T-Mobile USA and WIND Mobile and Mobilicity and Videotron in Canada. The second version of the Nexus One (PB99110) supports UMTS frequency bands 1 (2100 MHz), 2 (1900 MHz), and 5 (850 MHz), allowing it to access 3G in most of Europe, as well as on AT&T Mobility in the USA and Rogers Wireless, Fido Solutions, Bell Mobility, and Telus Mobility in Canada. The second version of the Nexus One also works on Telecom New Zealand's XT Mobile Network, Telcel's 3G Network and Telstra's Next-G network.
    The UMTS radio supports High Speed Packet Access; HSDPA at 7.2 Mbit/s, and HSUPA at 2 Mbit/s.[2]
