    Default [Advice] Are there different 3G versions ?

    do you have any idea if the US 3G GSM network compatible iPhone will also work on the european 3G networks? As far as I know Nokia is manufacturing two different kinds of 3G nokia phones, seperately for USA and Europe.

    3G is 3G. The reason there has been a difference between the phones in the old days was because Europe was using GSM and America CDMA.

    Before triband/quadband phones the European phones also only worked on 900/1800Mhz (or 800/1800Mhz) and the American one on 800Mhz (or 900Mhz, whichever was left out).

    As current Euro 3G phones work fine in the USA, there should be no reason to have 2 different versions of nextPhone.

    I don't think this is the case.

    While the technology behind GSM-evolved 3G is the same in Europe and the US, the frequencies used by carriers in different countries remain different. Not all phones support all frequencies, just as was the case with triband GSM.

    AT&T's 3G network operates at 1900mhz, and T-Mobile US will operate its upcoming 3G network at 1700mhz. 2100mhz looks to be the standard across Europe.

    Or am I wrong?

    capntang is absolutely correct. The only difference between Europe 3G and US 3G is the bands (I won't get into the different speed specs of 3G like HSDPA/UPA/etc). And even within the US, the 3G bands for the GSM providers are on different frequencies (once T-Mobile actually goes live, that is). Because Apple is stuck on this one carrier per country at the moment, I wouldn't expect them to come out with a dual band US 3G iPhone since their customers are supposedly locked to AT&T.

    The best case scenario I could imagine is they'll have the bands used overseas and the band used by AT&T so that there is only one bill of materials. I wish it wern't so because I'm on Tmobile and no way in hell going to AT&T.
