    It supports UMTS 900/1700/2100. The 900 is for European 3G and the 1700/2100 is for T-Mobile 3G. AT&T needs either 850 or 1900 for 3G

    The best you'll get with it on AT&T is 2G. To be honest, 2G isn't bad if you are only looking at mobile news sites.

    Mango won't unlock it. You need to get the unlock code from T-Mobile by calling them. There are also a few places on the internet that will unlock it for you, but they will charge you for the unlock.

    There's an unlocked AT&T version. I had it, but I sent it back because it had a defective screen. Waiting on a Titan at the moment.

    The windows software or the upgrade to mango won't lock it or unlock it. That's done separately.
