Yeah I kind of thought that was the case. What is weird is that 3g is
already running in the US and for the table at the article it seems
Argentina has the same bands.

The ones that differ a lot are the European ones, Italy and UK for instance.

So no problem, I would just need to move there.... :-)

Italy was so nice last september, I could live there and eat focaccias
and prosciutto...
