I don't have these 3G issue with my Nexus One. I live in Maryland, Bethesda, which is part of Washington Metropolitan area. I have close to 2 mps to 3 mps and signal are strong and solid. But not just in my house because I live in a dead zone. I could work 10 minutes away from my house and got 20 ASU 60 dbm full 3G bars but not in my house.

I've had my Nexus one for about 6 months now and love it! I've actually never had issues with 3G speeds in L.A. Especially when I am home, i've seen my phone hit 4.5 Mbps consistantly. I use the tethering feature wherever I go and it's come in handy on family trips where my cousins have to use my connection with their iPhones just to get faster service! I've been a long T-Mobile subscriber primarily because of their rate plans. I know they don't have a spectacular lineup of phones, but you can't beat their rates! Google and HTC must be very happy with them since most of Android's developer phones are on T-Mobile (G1, MyTouch3G, Nexus One).

I currently live in Australia. They use the same frequencies that T-Mobile does in the US for 3G. I have been using the HTC Desire here for a couple of months without incident.

What other phones, Verizon phones? DIFFERENT NETWORK people are fucking stupid. T-mobile doesn;t have a 3g network so that is the reason why they don't have signal.

Yeah, stupid people with their stupid facts and stuff.  T-Mobile's supposed "3G" network that was supposedly set up in May of 2009, supposedly.  Everyone with half a brain knows that's a lie, perpetrated by T-Mobile to get people to sign up for this fake service.  I know for a fact that my T-Mobile phone says that it's connected to a 3G network, but it's not.  It's just connected to an Edge network with 3G speeds.  And another thing, everyone knows that all these cellular companies are just one company, CellularOne, with a bunch of fake businesses created by CellularOne, just like what Enron did.

Rock on Danthrax66.  We don't need these stupid people and their stupid facts.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that T-Mobile not only has a 3G network, but that it is the fastest in the country:

Ok, so they do have 3G.  It's still stupid with all their stupidness and stupitude.  I only said they didn't have it because they might as well not have it because 3G is stupid since 4G isn't stupid.  And T-Mobile is so far behind everyone else that nobody knows what they have anyway because everyone is so stupid.  Stupid people with all their stupid stupidness.  God, you people are so stupid.  Sometimes I think I really need to start my own website that's not filled with such stupid information when I visit this stupid site every stupid day.  You people don't know anything.  Stupid stupids.

fast doesn't mean reliable and who cares about 3g speed 4g is where it's at. T-mobile behind the curve like they have been for years.

Gizmondo is so unrealiable. Fact is, T-mobile uses a very different type of 3G frequency than verizon, at&t, and Sprint does.  I won't elaborate on technical jargon, but I assure you that T-mobile's network plays a part in this issue.

The question is, does this issue fall upon google or T-Mobile? Especially since google released fixes for this issue and have their hands tied. There's nothing more they can do. I personally think the suit is garbage to begin with, but if there was any responsibility to be had, it falls on T-mobile now, since google did all they could from a firmware stand point. And if it's a hardware phone defection, it falls on both google and T-mobile. Yes, the phone is made poorly in terms of offering service on T-mobiles frequency, but T-mobile also gave the ok for this phone's production and sale on their network.
