    Hey Crackberry friends!!
    I am heavily interested on how phone frequencies work - and I understand most of these kinds of things, like the difference between 3G&2G as well as T-Mobile (AWS) [WIND Mobile, and Mobilicity in Canada] frequencies versus their AT&T 3G [Telus, Bell & Rogers] friends.
    My question is, there are two Bold 9900's - the AWS 900, 1700, & 2100 mHz model, and 800, 850, 1900, & 2100 mHz model. My question is why does the AWS model support the 900 mHz model? I have been researching and to my knowledge that our UK friends use 850 & 2100, so this makes the 900 band useless, no?

    So to shorten this, for us skim-readers, what is the use for the AWS model to have the 900 mHz band support?
    Thanks Nation!!

    The UK network regulator Ofcom freed up the 900mhz band last year to allow carriers to utilise it for 3G use.

    I know that O2 are already using it, and Vodafone may be too as all their new BlackBerry models are the 3G bands 1, 4 & 8 version now.
