AT&T 4G Network

This phone runs on AT&T's dual-band 850/1900 MHz 4G network (UMTS/HSDPA/HSPA+), and with HSPA+ you'll experience mobile data speeds up to 4x faster than ordinary mobile broadband--up to approximately 6 Mbps (download). AT&T has deployed HSPA+ to virtually 100 percent of its mobile broadband network, which enables 4G speeds when combined with enhanced backhaul (via Ethernet or fiber).

Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.

In areas where either AT&T's 3G or 4G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 US cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways.

Note: AT&T's 4G mobile broadband coverage is not available in all areas. 4G speeds delivered by HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul; availability increasing with ongoing backhaul deployment.

Optional AT&T Services

The full-featured, premium AT&T Navigator GPS navigation application includes audible turn-by-turn directions, real-time traffic updates and re-routing options, and 3D moving maps (additional charges applicable). AT&T Navigator offers several other features to make your commute more enjoyable and reliable, including mobile access to Yellowpages.com. Additionally, AT&T Navigator is the only mobile phone-based GPS service that provides integrated speech recognition for address entry and points of interest search.

AT&T U-verse Live TV allows you to experience live, on-demand, and downloadable mobile TV so you can watch wherever you happen to be. Watch your favorite channels and shows on your mobile phone, including live sports on ESPN Mobile TV and NBC Sports., breaking news on MSNBC and Fox News, the most popular children's programming from Disney Channel, and More.

3.0 out of 5 stars battery hog/SIM card issues - **2nd UPDATE** June 30, 2012
This is my 3rd Blackberry & my first touchscreen phone. I had a bad experience with the Palm Pixi when it came out - killed it in less than a month & went back to a Blackberry Curve. I decided to try touchscreen again when the Torch 9860 came out it was time to trade in my old Curve. I love the graphics, the speed and increased functionality compared to my older Curve. However - I'm starting to think I got a bad battery because I'm not seeing where they can claim you get standby time in excess of several days. I'm having to plug mine in twice a day to keep a decent charge & I'm not the type of person who is always on my phone. I use the auto on/off feature, I turned off the WiFi option and when I go to bed at night with a full charge, by morning (with it being off from midnight to 5 AM) I guarantee I'll need to charge it again before I leave for work. It will be at around 50% charged....Maybe that's the price you have to pay for the cool graphics, high speed & touchscreen. This is my first touchscreen so maybe this is normal - I don't know.

UPDATE - not a HOG afterall....I forgot it overnight in the charging cradle & everything has been fine since then. I can go all day & barely drain the battery. I'm sure somewhere in the instructions it told me to FULLY CHARGE BEFORE USING & I probably overlooked it. So as long as you give the battery plenty of time to fully charge you will be fine. Love this phone - just the right size, great graphics, easy to use & plenty fast. I just wish Blackberry wasn't always on the verge of collapse, because I've always liked their products.

2nd update- really disappointed with the construction/durability of this model. At least daily I get a "SIM card error"...sometimes several times a day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still learning, but so far, so good January 4, 2012
This is my first smartphone, so I'm still on the overall learning curve, but I'm happy so far. I chose this over the Android, and that is proving to be a good choice for me.(My wife as the Samsung Galaxy Skyrocket, which I've played with as well.) I was a Palm user for years and years, so I will say I've been spoiled by the PDA experience - seems no one has quite emulated some of the incredible things the Palm could do.

This phone works for me partly because it DOESN'T do everything the Android does. No flash video, for example, and not as many games & apps available. But for me, the phone needs to be a phone, not an entertainment device, so for what I use it (work) it is perfect. Messaging is great, phone quality is very good, and I can still grab facebook, news, weather and more. (Would be nice if it had flash.)

The size is what I like best - not quite as massive as the Android, not quite as thin either, but decent battery life and fits perfectly in the hand.

So, overall, terrific device.
