CONFIRMED: MTeoR lacks 850MHz Band

Ok, a user on HoFo received a letter from HTC, confirming lack of support for 850MHz USA band.

I am still really pissed. Such a nice sized phone in a great case. I really like the keypad compared to the Tornado as well. Seperated enough where you don't press more than one key at a time.

I still haven't heard back from the company I ordered mine from. If worse comes to worse, I think a lawsuit may be in need. Especially considering:

1) the time on the phone I've spent over this issue trying to contact HTC

2) the shipping we will have to pay to send this phone back

3) the microSD card that is useless unless buying a $15 miniSD adapter

4) the eBay charge for listing my Tornado (a friend ended up "buying" it from me)

okay, a far stretch, but:

5) the interest we could've made by investing $600? :confused:

Either way, many of us are unhappy. I don't think a refund is enough. Anybody else agree?

The letter may not be quite correct, the device is stated as tri-band for UTMS and quad-band for EDGE.

The inportant bit to remember is the following;

UTMS is the 3G while EDGE is the GSM variant.

Before threatening lawsuits etc you need to get the actual facts and prove the device does not work on the GSM 850 band yourself.

More details can be found at the HTC site.

A user on Howard Forums already received a letter from HTC verifying that the 850MHz band is missing and that the marketing group incorrectly posted specs on the HTC Europe website (and in turn on every supplier of the phone).
