US triband vs EU triband

I just confirmed basic functionality of 850/1800/1900 devices (US Freerunner) 
for 900MHz networks. RF sensitivity is poor, but sufficient for areas with 
good coverage.
For Germany a US device (850/1800/1900) worked flawlessly with German operator 
T-Kom (in urban area), and rather poor with Vodafone. Both are 900MHz 

Please notice I didn't yet check for the actual band used, so *if* T-Kom *and* 
Vodafone both had 1800MHz BTS here in the tested area, then this report might 
be moot. Anyway the result meets expected behaviour and 1800MHz BTS are not 
known for either operator.
