    I live in Jamaica where we normally get our BlackBerries from the US, either unlocked AT&T or T-Mobile BlackBerries. The problem I normally have is that the 3G doesn't work when we get T-Mobile BlackBerries because the bands are different. What I want to know is, with the 9900, would an AT&T 9900 have different 3G bands than a T-Mobile 9900? Its normally easier and cheaper to get an unlocked T-Mobile BlackBerry, so thats why I want to know.

    Yea. Claro 3G uses Band 5(850), but from what I'm seeing, no model of the 9900 uses that band?

    Yes, AT&T version of Bold 9900 have different 3G bands than T-Mobile branded 9900 3G bands. AT&T use 850/1900/2100, and T-Mobile use 900/1700/2100.

    I think you must figure out what bands the phone operates on.

    My 9900 operates on 3G Bands 1, 4, 8
