im sure that cant be to accurate as all iphone users are forced to pay for a 3g plan even if its not available anywhere around you i have to drive an hour before i get to a city with 3g and yet im still paying for it at&t sent a notice in january saying they will be building a 3g network in my city in 2009 im thinking there gonna wait till christmas eve cuz i see no signs of it anywhere one of the reasons i been looking into verizon although i love my iphone and would be lost without it i hate paying for something im not getting and since at&t wont let me upgrade my phone(to 3gs) until march without paying extra when my contract ends in jun im thinking droid does commercials look better and better as verizon has had 3g in my city for a while now. lol ok let me stop ranting jus a little touchy when it comes to at&t's 3g network.

just to tell u more info about this band frequencies means that every device needs to transmit its signals using its specific frequency which i guess the iphone is a killer frequency talking about

Looks like the radio spectrum needs some organization.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

When you pay a toll, you are also paying taxes for future road upgrades you are not currently using. Same thing, different "caching" kittie. Can I just point my iPhone towards an egg and get an omelet now?

i see your point, however i have no idea if the calculate that number based on the amount of 3G devices sold or the actual amount of people connected to the 3G network. for example my dads phone is on 3G for voice and my girlfriends LG shine works on 3G, but if they sell an iphone 3G or 3G capable phone in a non 3G area i'm not sure if that constitutes as part of that 41%.

Take that humanity and the frequency spectrum. The iPhone is literally crushing airwaves. Ok Android, your turn to perform a magic trick.....

Very Interesting stuff.. imagine if Apple had its way and iphoned for ATT and Verizon and maybe TMobile all were selling iphones to their customers..
We all would be in trouble!!

ever get the feeling that people just write...whatever press release copy is sent to them? like, just to get something out there that sounds like it's about something?

Most of the major carriers operate on the same bands (850/1900) which is probably the reason why T-Mobile went with 1700/2100mhz (currently just 1700mhz) More traffic is allowed and no other mobile carriers really use it besides Cricket/MetroPCS.

tmobile bought the biggest chunk of these frequency, but there were other buyers including at&t, so there still is plenty of unused spectrum. see the link below

They only use 1700mhz right now. They don't use 2100mhz for up and 1700mhz for down.
