    The trouble I see with no 850 UMTS is that 2G call quality is quite poor (that ticking buzzing of years gone by).
    Original Palm Pilot+modem > Kyocera QCP 6035 > Kyocera 7135 > Treo 650 > HTC TyTN (ugh) > Palm Centro > Nokia E75 > Nokia E72 + iPad2 > HP Veer + TouchPad + UK Pre3 + AT&T Pre3 > iPad2 + ATT Pre3 + Nokia N9 > Galaxy S3 > Pre3 > Nexus 4 > Blackberry Q10 + Galaxy Note 8.0

Thing is you can't bring this device with you everywhere you go. Its only usable at the one location you configure it for. Internal GPS prevents its use in multiple or unauthorized locations.

    Of course much of this information regarding the use of 3G / HSPA+ on 1900 MHz only in the USA is speculative or obtained indirectly from second hand sources. I won't be able to definitively answer this question until I receive and test out my EU Pre 3 here in the USA, Tuesday or Wednesday next week. Will post first hand results at that time.

    Here is a coverage map of the 1900 mhz band for att the pre 3 will run

    undecided about returing it though. Don't want to be getting rid of one I already have in hand without the promise of another on its way.
    I know logic doesn't work in some instances...(HP) but you would think it would be easier to just give a discount back, than to accept a return, and then resell for the discounted price..
