T-Mobile Says G2X Does Not Have Quadband HSPA+, Disappoints


In a response to an Engadget inquiry regarding the frequency bands on the T-Mobile G2X, T-Mobile has released a statement clarifying the included frequencies.

The T-Mobile G2x fact sheet, attached [PDF link], contains accurate information. The T-Mobile website is incorrect and we’re working to correct it. The G2x supports 850/900/1800/1900 MHz for 2G/GPRS only, and supports 3G/4G UMTS/HSPA+ bands I and IV. The G2x does not support AT&T’s 3G bands. This banding is hardware based.

Back in early September an eagle-eyed reader pointed out the T-Mobile.com page for the, at the time upcoming G2X indicated the device had quadband HSPA+. As it turns out G2X owners who have successfully unlocked the device have been unable to use the device on AT&T 3G. So now its settled, no quadband HSPA+ on the G2X.

    You know what the G2x does have, sadly, screen bleeding, issue with wifi staying connected, random reboots, and Everyone I’ve talked to on this phone says they can’t hear me that well, especially via wifi calling. Once these issues are resolved this phone will be 5 stars in my book. Right now, just basing everything off of my G2x, it’s 4.5 stars out of 5. Great phone plagued by corporate decisions and other x factors.

      I got a defective G2x, now I’m waiting for a replacement. I agree with what you’re saying tho. Hopefully i get a good handset this time.
