Thanks for the extremely detailed replies J-Hop2o6 and Viper Matrix Wireless. I think I mostly understood everything.
A couple points for clarification:
1) When I was asking if coverage for 1900 Mhz HSPA+ would be just as good as AWS, when the refarm is done, I meant in terms of geographical area covered (numbers of towers, I suppose?), not technically how good is the building penetration (although that's a nice plus to know about). Will I get coverage in all the same places that I might go with my AWS phone right now, with a phone that does HSPA+ on 1900 Mhz?
2) Is there a way if I can tell right now if I'm getting HSPA+ on 1900 Mhz, without have a 1900 Mhz HSPA+ phone (I have a Nexus One)?
3) Viper when you say that it would be best to get a phone that has the 850/1900 bands, are you saying that this will be preferable to a phone with AWS HSPA+? That is, if it's a choice between one or the other, since there are very few phones that have both.
4) Eventually will this mean that AT&T phones are completely compatible with T-Mobile's network both on HSPA+ and LTE (using AWS)? They would work just as well as a T-Mobile phone?
Thanks again for all the details and explanation above.
Well that & I think a bunch of people left the carrier completely and onto somewhere else sadly.
I do have a question tho. Why does the Samsung Galaxy Note II have AT&T LTE Roaming?
Yea I miss the old small little community we had here for a couple of years =( .. What have you been up to?
But yea, I have no clue. I guess its more of not having alot of different variants. Easier to have the whole package. Plus Samsung has more say and cant be pushed around by the US Cartel Carriers as before. That's my guess. I'm not complaining atleast.
