[maemo-users] Can´t believe N900 doesn´t support 850/1900 UMTS...

I think Argentina uses the same frequencies as the US, so I would be very surprised if those frequencies are not supported by the N900. Maybe the supported frequencies depend where you buy it?


I don't know if this is the case for the N900 (I hope not), but with the N80 there was a funny problem. In Argentina the European version was sold as it supported the Spanish language, but it would not work on UMTS because it used the European bands. To have the N80 working on 3G you needed to buy it in the US, but in that case it would not support Spanish. Nice, ain't it?

Good luck.
