    Umm that just means the phone can run 3G and edge on the same frequencies. Does not mean AT&T uses the same.
    Remember it is a designed for the world and US uses different 3G than everyone else.

    it depends.

    ATT voice is generally 1900.

    HSDPA was mostly 1900 but 850 is also being utilized after the shutdown of the analog network...

    and no, it wouldn't be any faster or slower due to the frequency in itself.
