    [FAQ]Motorola Atrix 4G and Motorola Atrix 2 spectrum support

    DISCLAIMER: I am not an expert. I spend hours searching for the information I post. I cannot verify that all of it is 100% correct. If you see something that is incorrect, and CAN verify it, I would greatly appreciate it!!

    So I think it is time I created this thread as I have seen a lot of questions in regards to this.

    I will update as often as possible, though I make no promises. It is now summer time, it gets bright early and dark late. And like any good boss, my boss likes to take advantage of that. I do too!

    I will start with the US and Canadian carriers because the information is easily available. As I get requests for more countries, I will add them to the list.

    Note 1: Both versions of the Atrix are GSM phones. They require SIM cards. In the US, there are two major carriers; T-Mobile and AT&T. Both Sprint and Verizon are CDMA carriers. Eighty-three percent of the world uses GSM for their cellular networks.

    Note 2: T-Mobile does not have widespread coverage on 1900Mhz for their HSPA ("4G") service. They primarily use 2100Mhz, which is not supported by either phone. They are trying to get more coverage in 1900Mhz due to iPhone users wanting to leave AT&T (an assumption someone else made that I am repeating here...makes sense to me), which also will add compatibility for the Atrix 4G and Atrix 2.

    Note 3: I need someone with a little more knowledge than myself to confirm that the reason that these devices do not work on T-Mobile's network is the lack of support for 1700Mhz on the device and no UMTS/HSPA/HSPA+ on 850Mhz. Otherwise, I cannot tell you EXACTLY why the phone will not work.



    Motorola Atrix 4G (for AT&T):

    GSM Arena

    2G Networks: GSM 850/900/1800/1900
    3G Networks: HSDPA 850/900/1900/2100

    **The frequencies used will vary depending on where you live.**

    Motorola Atrix 2

    GSM Arena

    2G Networks: GSM 850/900/1800/1900
    3G Networks: HSDPA 850/900/1900/2100

    Carriers: United States

    AT&T:

    Frequency Protocol Class
    850Mhz GSM/GPRS/EDGE 2G
    1900Mhz GSM/GPRS/EDGE 2G
    850Mhz UMTS/HSPA 3G
    1900Mhz UMTS/HSPA 3G
    700Mhz LTE "4G"
    1700/2100Mhz LTE "4G"



    T-Mobile:

    Frequency Protocol Class
    850Mhz GSM/GPRS/EDGE 2G
    1900Mhz GSM/GPRS/EDGE 2G
    1700/2100Mhz UMTS/HSPA/HSPA+ 3G
    1900Mhz UMTS/HSPA/HSPA+ 3G
    1700/2100Mhz LTE "4G"


    Carriers: Canada


    Rogers Wireless:

    Frequency Protocol Class
    700Mhz LTE "4G"
    850Mhz UMTS/HSPA 3G
    1700Mhz LTE "4G"
    1900Mhz GSM/GPRS/EDGE 2G


    Note: I found it difficult to find clear information. Any help there would be appreciated.

    Bell Mobility:

    Frequency Protocol Class
    850Mhz UMTS/HSPA/HSPA+ 3G
    1700Mhz LTE "4G"
    1900Mhz UMTS/HSPA/HSPA+ 3G


    Note: Bell also supports a CDMA network. Again, I had a difficult time finding the information clearly, and did not want to dig in to it too much as the Atrix phones are GSM phones. However, Bell has coverage claiming support in over 200 countries.


    Telus:

    Frequency Protocol Class
    850Mhz UMTS/HSPA 3G
    1700Mhz LTE "4G"
    1900Mhz UMTS/HSPA 3G
    2100Mhz LTE "4G"


    Note: Again, I have found it difficult to find clear information. I have to pull bits and pieces which I cannot verify from various web pages. I have tried to reduce my search mechanics to the last 12 months, but even then I am having some trouble.


    Carriers: UK (I am referencing this page for a good portion of the information for the UK. I do not know how accurate it is. If anyone knows more, please let me know so I can edit it.)


    Three (3): Note that Three does not support a 2G network (from what I have found).

    Frequency Protocol Class
    1900Mhz UMTS 3G
    2100Mhz UMTS 3G


    O2 (BT Cellnet):
