I dont know the kb to mb ratio or whatever but I had the blackberry 8703 with the 3g broadband speeds and it completely raped the sidekicks edge in loading pages. I am really hoping the iphone hardware improves the performance of EDGE. The fact that the iphone sparked a 15 page forum discussion is proof enough of the hype and we will all see how good the iphone does come june 29th. As for now my apple stock is at $125 almost so they are doing something right.

I switched from Verizon to Cingular because I got tired of Verizon's little hidden fees and their increase of the price of texts from 10 cents to 15 cents. Heaven forbid I go over a few and now I have to pay 50% more for that

Sorry but EDGE is basically 200kbps MAX and reaching MAX is quite impossible.. 3G on the otherhand is 384kbps and is easier to attain.

Yep. Only bad thing is the battery life. Get a better battery (or two) like i'm about to, and you'll be set. IT's FREAKIGN AWESOMES! Does pretty much everything the iPhone does without the touch screen, and wih an OS you can do stuff too. It's the PC version of the iPhone. And you're getting it for $100 less than i did 2 months ago.

Much quicker. Using wifi, pages load about as they do on a normal computer using the same connection.

I don't wanna read thru a week of thread to see if someone said, but they where given up, the company with them had not had an active product with that name for the amount of time they where supposted to to keep using the trademark, they where just trying to make money off of apple. They threatened legal action, but nothing ever happend, they where in the wrong.

No, quad-band is 850 / 900 / 1900 /1800 (99% sure) which makes the phone a world phone and will work anywhere in the world (so long as it is unlocked and you can put in a local sim)... Say I go to Israel with my unlocked Pebl (quad-band) it will work with the local cell service there.. If I have a tri / dual band it may not.. If you have an 1800/1900 dual band phone it will work like shetaki mushrooms on ATT because ATT uses 850 / 1900 t-mobile is mostly 1900 with a bit of 1800...

WAP which is even older and worse is basically dial up, EDGE is basically DSL where the bands is the modem and 3G is modern day cable. EDGE is a cheaper alternative of 3G but still you need a phone that is EDGE ready otherwise you can use WAP which is yeah.. CRAP?

------

Everyone knows Cingular is now again, AT&T but not everyone is used to it.. Even the AT&T reps are like Hello thanks for calling c-i-AT&T this is <name>..
