Do you guys have any idea of what you are talking about? 3G has been around Europe for about 5 years now, Sweden just signed up for 4G and will have that installed in 2011, The US are way behind when it comes to mobile life and the IPHONE is the proof that US's standard for a phone in this day and age is way below average. cool yes, good no.
Does anybody know if I can use the new Iphone 3G with my old GSM chip (sim)?
K, 13 Jun 2008Question to the US..... Do you guys EVEN HAVE 3G capability??? EDGE is not 3G. Poin... moreDude certain states and areas in the US has 3G, plus Saudi Arabia and i'm sure other counties in the middle east and around the world had 3G for a while now.
Aussie Dude. Canada has 3g. Rogers network has 3g. We have live video calling which works with 3g!
Here in the Philippines, we already have 3.5G HSDPA, even on prepaid service, contrary to some opinions that we'll only have 3G by 2010.
Sorry to have to correct you, Aussiedude, but here in Holland we definitely have 3G. Vodafone offers HSDPA 3.6 Mbit unlimited internet surfing for 9.95 a month, and the other providers offer 1.8 Mbit/s for that price. No idea where you got the rediculous notion that Europe doesn't have 3G yet.

Poin... moreFrom the US:
Yes we have 3G (HSDPA and UMTS). We're not as backwards as other countries seem to think.
K, 13 Jun 2008Question to the US..... Do you guys EVEN HAVE 3G capability??? EDGE is not 3G. Poin... more3G is all over, even in South Africa there is 3G and HSPDA, i use it with my HTC. I am planning on buying the IPhone 3G from USA to use it in South Africa, my question is Will the Iphone 3G be network locked.
omfg ! Only australia has 3g ?
.... tc tc tc Bulgarian has 3G for years now.
Austira and so on ...
why no video calling camera? i was thinking that it will come with one .... sad to say i have a old iphone , not one more with no Video caller .... :C
What's the HSDPA speed? 3.6 Mbps or 7.2 Mbps?
And answering the question, the 3G Technology is present in all Europe, Australia, almost all Latin America and in North America also, in Japan they use WCDMA (Docomo) that's diferent of WCDMA (UMTS) used in all other countries, but more then 50% of the world already have 3G networks working, I think that in Korea and USA they use also 3G(EV-DV)that is CDMA evolution for 3G.
Vogj, Australia does have 3G, but so does a host of other countries. A lot of countries in Europe, and the biggest fish of them all... Japan.
K, 13 Jun 2008Question to the US..... Do you guys EVEN HAVE 3G capability??? EDGE is not 3G. Poin... moreUh... where on earth you come from? Only Australia 3G? MOST of Asia is already in 3G, and also most part of Europe. That is why Apple has to make its promise and roll out the 3G iPhone one year later in order to corner the European and Asian markets. Because here no one would be interested in a 2G handset, and many of us here do not have the EDGE network either.
