    I think you meant 1700 AWS and 2100 IMT. If you have phone with those 3G frequencies then yeah it should work with Wind as long as they allow other phones.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UMTS_frequency_bands

    If you have a 3g phone with only one of those frequencies then no, it won't work on 3g Wind properly, you need both those 3g frequencies.

    AWS, which is what Wind operates on, uses 1700 MHz for upstream and 2100 MHz for downstream. So your Euro 3G phone with 2100 MHz will not work on Wind, since it doesn't have 1700 MHz. Capiche?

    Short answer: no carrier in North America has IMT2100 or "2100" anything that's listed on a phone spec. You need "1700" or UMTS BAND IV.

    yes, but i thought so, u know i know a thing or 2 about phones. u might see by the number of posts and the different phones i have. and this is what puzzled me when i saw wind stating they work on 2100 umts. its like saying dave will operate on 900/1800 gsm which does not exist in north america

    AWS = 1700 = UMTS BAND IV

    Correct, it's not "AWS UMTS 2100", it's "AWS" and "UMTS 2100". It's a bad way to describe it but it's completely separate from UMTS 2100.

    Wow, that was very informative, I was under that same impression as well, I found it kind of weird that there was no listing of 1700 but instead just AWS. I think they should just use the number instead of the abbreviation.

    So my understand at this point is that any of the phones from this link below, will allow me to have WIND 3G (if that phone has 3G capabilities):

    i beg to differ, they should use the abbreviation instead of the numbers.

    to see a phone with HSPA 850/1900/AWS makes more sense than HSPA 850/1900/1700/2100. because our minds are programmed to think phones only communicate on one band, not two, but AWS is unique where it uses one band for uplink and one for downlink.

    So looking from the example you gave, AWS represents 1700/2100?
