Some friends and I were discussing unlocked phones and this came up.
I own a quad-band GSM phone that I got through AT&T. I chose a quad-band phone for when I'm overseas. I get 3G speeds in Malaysia with it. Just for grins I popped my wife's T-Mobile SIM in and also got 3G.
My wife's T-Mobile phone is not quad-band. I put in my AT&T SIM and only had EDGE.
In my mind this makes sense if these things work like I think they work in the United States. But someone disagreed with me. He said it was impossible for me to have seen 3G speeds with anything other than an AT&T SIM. Who is correct?
