    If this phone would work on my carriers network for 3g data and voice?

    My carrier runs on 1900 mhz. So will this phone work?

    Right from Htc's website:

    HTC - Products - HTC Desire HD - Specification


    HSPA/WCDMA: 900/2100 MHz
    GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

    Asia Pacific:
    HSPA/WCDMA: 900/2100 MHz
    GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

    Nope. European phones run 2100mhz for data. You have to wait for HTC to release a U.S. spec Desire HD or switch to a provider that runs 2100mhz.

    Plus, the Desire HD only supports HSPA. Not HSPA+. It won't utilize the full speed of the new network.

    If you want something that utilizes the full potential of HSPA+, get a T-Mobile G2 when it comes out.

    Actually the Desire HD is HSPA+ at 14.4, the same as the G2 (which is the same phone as the Desire Z).

    And darklide, judging from some of the other threads I've seen you in, I gave you some incomplete frequency info yesterday. Sure is annoying trying to keep track of which versions of which models use which frequencies and which networks they're compatible with.
