    Well, that sucks. It was a major highlight of the phone. I don't know of any other smart phone right now that can use bonding to increase aggregate bandwidth.

    Just saw this on Droid-Life. Wow, just wow. Apparently they are doing it to "help" those with capped data. Well, some of us still have unlimited, folks. :rolleyes:

    That's stupid. Why remove a feature like that?

    You could buy the t-mobile version at full retail in order for them to sim unlock it for you and then just use it on AT&T.

    Won't the root community be able to put it back? I LOVE the root community.

    Just got mine today and to be honest, the speed of this thing is so damn fast, I could give a rat's ass that it doesn't have it. Apps download in seconds. I mean really?

    Really. It's an advertised feature that the major carriers disabled. We (the root community) really detest when the carriers limit our choices. Choice is the hallmark of what it is to own an Android vs an iPhone. /rant. :p
