    Storm 2 9520/9550 on AT&T

    I have been looking around the net and can't get a final answer to my question.

    Will either the 9520 or 9550 work on AT&T's 3G network after it is unlocked?

    Thanks in advance.

    I assume that it would work if it were unlocked... it is quad band. They wouldn't handicap the upgrade when I can already hop on AT&T networks with my VZW-activated S1.

    No it will not.
    It will only get EDGE.

    I don't know much of anything about AT&T and assumed it would work, because I thought AT&T used UMTS and that the S2 is equipped.

    Someone enlighten us? =]

    The S2 will run on AT&Ts network. Vzw registers their devices via ESN. However AT&T registers sim cards and imei. You will need to have an active Sim card with AT&T and have a blackberry imei registered on the same line. If you wanna use data other then wi-fi you need a data plan for that line. Use that Sim card in an unlocked S2 and it will work.

    Right, and the UMTS (3G) aspects will work also? This is my assumption, but I've never played with unlocking bbs locked for CDMA and putting them on GSM networks...
