Re: 3G phone?

The HTC Touch Diamond for sprint is 3G enabled. Sprint and Verizon use CDMA technology whereas AT&T and Tmobile are GSM carriers.

Re: 3G phone?

yea, 3g is short for 3rd generation. cdma's 3g came years ago with evdo.

@op you need to fill in your profile info to show your carrier. the only gsm carriers in the US are ATT and T-mobile


lol, here's my first 3g phone.

Re: 3G phone?

Yes. You can do what is called Tethering to download at DSL-like speeds. The technology that 3G uses on CDMA is called EVDO.

I had pretty much that same phone (as my 2nd cell phone, Nokia "brick" was my first)

I even had the camara attachement since it was the only way to take pictures at the time. IT WAS $100!!!!

Re: 3G phone?

In EV-DO mode, it's 3G. In 1X mode, it's "2.5G"

CDMA is actually a hybrid of the 2.

Read about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CDMA2000

Re: 3G phone?

It's annoying that you can't use EVDO for texting/phone calls. Stinking cheap carriers.
