    I know only the 1900 band but this is all 800 correct? So any 800 I buy on eBay will have the bands right? Just wanna make sure.

    Potentially no. You will miss the 850 band which is more common. All the eBay ads saying the phones have all bands are incorrect mostly. I'd wait a few weeks when hopefully the North American Lumia 800 is out.

    It supports gsm 850 but not hspa 850. Just look at the specs, look at the bands. The only lumia that would have 850 hspa is from australia, canada or US.

    Yout need to look at the UMTS/HSDPA frequencies for 3G. AT&T uses 850/1900 for 3G. Europe uses 900/2100 for 3G.

    Here's an unlocked/unbranded Lumia 800 import that supports AT&T frequencies:

    My lumia 800 supports 850. The box doesn't have the bands listed on it like others. I also haven't read anything official that says the 800 only supports 3 bands. Some nokia websites say quad band but the UK says tri-band. I have never known or actually seen a unbranded nokia phone to not have a quad band phone. I would bet leaving the third band off of the UK model is more something that Nokia did because they were planning to release in the States. But its all speculation.
