Using the HTC G2 (unlocked) on AT&T (will it support 3G vs HSPA+)?

Using the HTC G2 (unlocked) on AT&T (will it support 3G vs HSPA+)?

I recently bought (full price @ $500) an HTC G2 (from T-Mobile), got an unlock code from T-Mobile's "SIM Unlock Team" and put a SIM card from my AT&T HTC Tilt in the G2.

 

Voice calls, including VM notification works great.

 

So does Wifi

 

However I am not able to access AT&T's (3G) data network with this phone.

 

I think that is because T-Mobile's data network supports HSPA+ and that is how the phone is configured.

 

Is there any way I can use the HTC G2 with AT&T's 3G data network?

I have not gotten my phone to receive 3G, however it is fairly responsive in Edge. The staff at AT&T was helpful in setting up my G2 so that it would work on their network. Smiley Tongue

If anyone has had success getting 3G, please let me know what you did.


Read the thread you replied to.  The G2 will not work on AT&T's 3G.  It does not have the correct hardware to do so.
