Ah--nice. I haven't spoken to anyone at AT&T about this, but the
coverage-maps at seem to indicate that missing the
850-MHz band wouldn't be a problem on their networks, either (the `GSM
850' and `GSM 1900' shaded maps look identical...).

So, can anyone officially confirm if the 850-MHz version is
discontinued? If this is the case, I'd like to update the wiki (which
still says "GTA02 has 2 versions, 850/1800/1900 Mhz and 900/1800/1900
Mhz version").

Don't be afraid to ask (Lf.((Lx.xx) (Lr.f(rr)))).
