    Hey,

    I've currently got an HTC Radar on T-Mo but I would really like to replace it with a phone that I can use on T-Mo, AT&T, and AT&T-based MVNOs like Straight Talk and Simple Mobile.

    I guess I'm just wondering if anyone is aware of ANY pentaband Windows Phones, perhaps a global variant that could be imported? I'm actually a bit shocked that Nokia hasn't done it yet given that pentaband has historically been their thing. Thanks in advance!

    Okay...maybe it's for the best. It's a sign that I should wait for Apollo. Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure the T-Mobile Lumia 710 is pentaband. I used 3g service on both T-Mobile and ATT service.

    The Samsung Omnia 7 has this capability. I know, I have one. I believe the DVP also has this but I don't own one anymore. On the Omnia 7 you go into diagnosis app (##634#) and punch in*#2263# and select option 2 for band preference. From there you have 5 bands to choose from or option 6 which selects all bands. Your choices are 850, 900, 1800, 1900 & 2100 (or all). Hope this helps. BTW, I believe I read that the Lumia 710 came this way also as part of the supposed merger that never happened. Peace, love and soul.:)

    Unfortunately, the Dell Venue PRO isn't being made anymore which is a pentaband phone with both AT&T and T-Mobile frequencies in it. You can still find it on Newegg and Amazon for less than 200.

    I wish you had some supporting information so I could ram it down an *****'s throat at XDA who swears upon his high mighty horse that there are no such things as pentaband WP7 phones, even though I own one. Thanks! :)

    How would this work for ya.

    Newegg.com - Dell Venue Pro 3G Unlocked Cell Phone w/ 4.1" Sliding Touch Screen / 5MP Camera / LED Flash

    My mistake, it is quad band, no 400 mhz freq in it to make it pentband

    There are five WCDMA bands listed, same as the Omnia 7. The reason I was pretty sure is because I used to have Simple Mobile which operates at T-Mob's 1700 band for 3G and I switched to Straight Talk which is an AT&T MVNO and I was able to get 3G as well by switching bands on the DVP. Same as the Omnia. Thanks again.

    I believe my 710 is indeed a pentaband phone as I am able to use it on all Gsm carriers in Canada that I have tried but with new phones coming in few months might want to wait. The 710 is a steal at 250 outright.
