"The first step required to upgrade WCDMA to HSPA is..."
From all the reading I have done, which makes me feel like a dog
chasing it's tail..
- wcdma doesn't imply HSPA support, but HSPA *can* be backwards
compatible with the older specs.
- Edge is a competitor to (wcdma based) UMTS
- Edge runs inside existing GSM freq, while UMTS required all new
I am sure Rick will correct us ;), but sounds like your device is
too old and is falling back to now legacy EDGE (pre-3G) frequencies
because T-Mobile is busy upgrading their (UMTS, using wcdma) towers
and aren't looking back.
How old are the devices, or rather, how old are the chipsets in
