HD2 not compatible with att 3g?

Hi everyone,

Even though ATT has 3g coverage in my area, my hd2 does not connect to the 3g network. After talking to an HTC consumer service agent, and editing the settings of the exisitng MEdia Net connection, I'm still not able to connect to the 3g network, anybody has a suggestion?

P.S HTC support told me that my device is the South African version and might not be compatible with att. should I be concerned about this comment?

appreciate your help

yes you did post in the wrong forum, but a mod will move it eventually and i will answer your question

the HD2 is not compatible with att 3G because att and tmobile's 3g networks run on a different frequency, HTC only put a radio in the HD2 that is compatible with tmobile's network and i think some network up in canada, i dont remember what band it is but they refer to it as AWS and as far as i know, no one else uses it
so yeah, if you move it to att or roam international with it (unless its canada) you're stuck with EDGE

I might be wrong but I believe if you get the Telestra HD2 (Australian service provider) it will work on ATT 3G

the OP said the same thing about the S African one, i'm sure you could import one that is compatible, just a matter of finding it

Re: HD2 not compatible with att 3g?

thank you guys , your comments have been really useful.

Actually, I'm going to keep my cellphone till my contract ends with att, see the phone on ebay, and then see what the market has to offer.

I think it's my best option now
