    Is there any confirmation on weather the iPhone 4G will be able to use 3G networks. The Apple site indicates that it uses the following data interfaces:
    UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)
    GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
    802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi (802.11n 2.4GHz only)
    Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR wireless technology

    Does anyone know.. it would suck if it couldn't use 3G and reverted to GPRS!

    There is no such thing as 4G service on AT&T. There is no 4G chip in the iPhone 4. I do not understand how you and everyone else are so caught up on this. The iPhone 4 will run on the 3G network. In areas with no 3G it will revert to EDGE or GPRS.

    As everyone said, its iPhone 4 NOT 4G.

    Currently, Sprint is the only 4G network in the US.

    even if the iphone was capable of 4G freqs, (which it isnt) it would be self defeating if apple went and got rid of previous cell phone generation compatibility. No phone does this, not even the iPhone.

    If there's no 3G it hops onto edge, if theres no edge, it hops onto gprs...that is the nature of all phones.
