Z10 LTE Bands
Please tell me I'm mis-reading the available LTE radio frequencies on the Z10. Both the major networks here in Australia use the 1800 MHz band. It's not on the FCC spec sheet.
RIM is seriously going to try and release this phone without the 1800 MHz band? The most popular LTE band in the world?
I can't believe they would do that. Someone set me straight!

ATT LTE bands 17/4
Verizon LTE bands 13
Sprint LTE bands 25
And most likely, a T-Mobile version without LTE, or else a US Cellular version with band 12.
Addendum: Just FYI, but Apple also submitted multiple iPhone 5 models at the same time to the FCC.... I don't think anybody's expecting a new iPhone 5 anytime soon.

I can't believe RIM would exclude a major part of the market.
But that being said the Crackberry list of rumored specs located here:
Rumored BlackBerry Z10 Specs and Features | CrackBerry.com
I don't see LTE 1800 listed if I'm reading it right. It is listed under GSM

LOL, let's not get our panties in a bunch, the FCC wouldn't review international phones because they won't be sold here...The phones the FCC mentioned are the ones being sold in the US. Not sure what's difficult to understand about this, but spreading false rumors in ignorant and hurtful to BB.

Why is everyone getting so worked up over this? You guys are acting as if the people at RIM don't know how to do their jobs and have no insight on the industry. I am pretty sure that they will be selling in major markets such as Australia as well and with LTE. It would not make sense if they did not as they already sell BlackBerry devices in these countries anyway

The 2nd BB10 FCC filing for the RFH121LW https://apps.fcc.gov/eas/GetApplicat...tml?id=1871667:RFH121LW also supports GSM/GPRS/EDGE 900/1800 MHz, UMTS/HSPA+ Bands I & VIII, and LTE Bands 3, 7, 8, & 20 that are not operational in North America, therefore no data is presented in this report for those bands.
The RFF91LW was definitely one of the Z's and supports LTE Bands 2, 5, 4 and 17.
What worries me is that the RFF91LW for the US doesn't support HSPA or WCDMA on the 2100 MHz band which makes it less of a world phone than my Bold 9900. The other one has bands I and VIII which is 2100 and 900 WCDMA/HSPA+. I was worried that to get LTE I'd lose true world phone UMTS/HSPA support and that looks to be the case. Hopefully the London without LTE will be an option for me and be a true world phone because I don't want LTE at the expense of inferior international capability!

T-Mobile USA will have LTE on AWS bands in 2013. I dont see why they wouldnt launch Z10 w/o them
HSPA+ bands for TMO AWS 1700/2100mhz, and with refarm 1900 PCS spectrum.
LTE is AWS 1700/2100mhz.
Also does anyone know if HSPA+ in Z10 is HSPA+ 14.4 (---- whats in 9900 now) , or 21, or 42?Blackberry Bold 9900 T-Mobile USA

Well, I got worked up because I forgot there is due to be more than one variant of the Z10. Apologies for the presumed panic!
I don't blame you. After all this waiting it would be upsetting to think something fell through the cracks. Nice to know it's not the case.

I'm looking for better 3G/4G transitions on Verizon, so far they can't do it very well.Twitter: RaptorOO7
I tried to remember my mobile device history and realized I have had way too many to remember them all.
