I wanted to buy the Motorola Defy Plus to use on AT&T USA. If you look at the fact sheet on the website it says it operates on the following bands: Dual-band WCDMA 850/1900,
850/2100, 900/2100, Quadband
I went to buy one from a place in the U.K. and it listed the HSDPA/WCDMA bands as only 900/2100. I asked why. UK only utilizes those bands. I asked Motorola if there is only one Defy Plus as opposed to several different ones for different countries. They said there is just one. I bought the phone and when I activate it, it stays in EDGE only. Is this because it was manufactured with only the 900/2100 WCDMA bands or do the other bands (850/1900 & 850/2100) just need to be somehow unleashed by a programming function? You guys may be the only ones knowledgable to answer this. Moto couldn't. The reason that it may be a tip is because if this particular is manufactured with only the 900/2100 bands, then there must be one in the waiting that has the right bands for AT&T which would mean they will offer as well?
That is unannounced. Are there any other countries that use the same bands as AT&T USA? I hope you can help me.
