is that the phone your talking about? if so then it only supports 2100mhz which is only used as infill in major citys, and alot of it isn't even turned on yet ... to use the network properly you need a 850mhz / 2100mhz wcdma/hsdpa phone.

The XT 2100Mhz network is still being tweaked for maximum performance, so you need to wait a little bit longer I'm afraid.

Guys you do not want to use a 2100mhz 3G device on the XT network

ITS POINTLESS to say the least the XT network is %100 850mhz WCDMA

As others have pointed out that phone is pretty much useless on XT. You need a handset that supports 850MHz UMTS. That handset only supports 2100MHz so will only deliver coverage in some major cities.
