    Nope. The GSM radio is NOT 3g. Only the cdma part is.

    Would it still get EDGE though?

    I doubt it since telus doesn't have an edge network.

    That's not correct. Both radios have 3G capabilities, but unfortunately the GSM radio does not cover North American 3G frequencies.

    If you go to Europe you'll have no problem with 3G over GSM.

    Unfortunately in Canada you will only be able to use the 9550 on EDGE with Rogers/Fido.

    Bell & Telus only have 3G (HSPA) Networks and no EDGE (2G) to fall back on.

    Would an unlocked 9520 on telus hspa work?

    No because the 9520 is only 2100 frequency capable and Telus doesn't use that spectrum.
