    Hi there,
    I recently broke my iphone (for the 3rd time) and decided to switch to a unlocked i7500 that we had sitting around the office. The setup with at&t was no problem, and the phone works and has 2g data. However, I cannot connect to the 3g network. Is it possible that at&t does not support this phone for 3g?
    Thanks,
    Will

    yeah, the frequencies on the phone are for europe 3g, because it's a european phone, so it will only work on those bands, and not on AT&Ts band. On Tmobile however, 3g will work as it has the same 3g bands as Europe.

    I have an I7500 on AT&T too and 3g is a no go. It's still an awesome phone though, and after I put galaxo on it, it flies!

    thanks, that's what i suspected. I will have to try some of the mods, but so far I like it better (even without 3g) than my iphone.

    I was home in the states over the summer and made the same sad discovery (actually the real sad discovery was how much more expensive all mobile services are there).
