Re: Data issue with Straight Talk vs T-Mobile PPD
My understanding is that T-mobile phones will work fine on the AT&T network for both voice and SMS (text), but not for data unless the phone happens to be pentaband like the Galaxy Nexus (gsm) phone. Basically, if you switched without a pentaband phone you would get 2g not 3g data speeds. This is one of the maiin reasons I purchased my Galaxy Nexus (gsm) directly from Google. The extra frequency band provides for high speed data on either AT&T or T-mobile networks
