    HI, if a phone works on WCDMA band will it work also on a network that supports HSDPA only. In the UK most mobile networks works with HSDPA software upgrade. The manufacturer of the phone sayz it will. I contacted support, specificly 3 network. They say it will not. It needs HSDPA. Is a way around it?Can I add hsdpa support to the phone myself or some sort of emulator?

    Hi I want to order this phone. http://androidforums.com/newreply.php?do=postreply&t=743162There is no mention it supports HSPA data transfer which is I reckon protocol on top of 3G mandatory for 3 network or all networks in the UK. All it shows is WCDMA 2100mhz. It may or may not be the same thing, I don't know. From what I gathered the frequency is right.

    I was taking a quick gander through the ETSI site, and I couldn't find much in terms of specifications on the frequencies of the two technologies, but it kind of sounded like HSDPA is a build up of WCDMA.
    So... HSDPA is to WCDMA as 802.11n is to 802.11a

    (I think)
