I'm not sure mule....I'm asking because I don't know, How do you know that they only get the EDGE? Is this something you have read about?
I've never heard of anybody with an unlocked phone getting anything other than EDGE. The Storm even has a 3G symbol, but if you unlock it, you still will never see it. I asked VZW and they had no answer as to why this couldn't be done. Even all the posters here at BBOS are looking for the best radio to hold a steady EDGE signal, not the HSPA 3G symbol? I've always wondered this, but have never seen anybody ask.
