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.

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.Read more ›
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.
