Debunk: sleep easy, the iPhone's still a quad-band worldphonePosted May 18th 2007 4:43PM by Chris Ziegler

There's been a lot of buzz these past couple days about the iPhone's FCC filingand what it says -- or rather, what it doesn't say -- about thehandset's internals. The fear basically revolves around the fact that alack of testing on the GSM 900 and 1800MHz bands indicates that itlacks those bands entirely, but we can assure the globetrotters outthere jonesin' for an iPhone come next month that there'll be a fullrange of RF spectrum waiting for you. How do we know? Well, first ofall, in the year 2007 (or 2005, for that matter) it's simply idiotic torelease a wide-appeal phone with any fewer than four GSM bands.Quadband GSM chipsets have been commodity items for some time now andadd virtually no expense to a handset's internals. Second of all,quadband phones never havetheir non-US bands mentioned in a filing, particularly in a testreport. Follow the break for a walkthrough of exactly what we mean.% D7 A+ J9 M1 N' v/ v, B5 V

Let'stake a look at a released phone that we know to be quadband -- that is,a phone that supports GSM on the 850, 900, 1800, and 1900MHz bands,offering coverage pretty much anywhere in the world that a GSM towerexists. For our purposes, we'll pick on the RIM BlackBerry 8800. You're going to get a frightening peek into our daily FCC-lurking insanity here.# n6 n9 k1 l8 Y  p# `9 k

Searching for the 8800's FCC ID reveals offers up four filings: one for each band the FCC cares aboutplus an accessory filing that details radiation emitted by the phone'sAC adapter. Here we see 850 and 1900 (GSM) and 2400 (Bluetooth). Nomention of GSM 900 or 1800 here, despite the fact that the 8800 has therequisite support; the bands aren't used in the States, so they're deadin the FCC's eyes and RIM is under no obligation to provide testreports for them (at least, not to the FCC).

0 S9 [4 L, K5 H# y4 `- w; G# y7 aNow let's take a closer look at the test report for the device itself.Pardon the size of the text here -- you can check out the actual filingif you're so inclined -- but essentially, once again you'll find zeromention of GSM 900 or 1800. The FCC just doesn't give a crap, and whyshould it? You can't use those bands here. It's impossible, unlessyou're running some rogue cell network, and let's face it -- if thatstarts to become a problem 'round these parts, the FCC has bigger fishto fry than a filing for a band you can't use.

; {: r' x" t* c" @1 CSo that's our little tutorial into the deep, dark annals of FCC madness. It's a place we prefer not to go unless we have to, and a place we recommend our readers neverventure. When a device like the iPhone gets blessed, though, it'spretty hard to avoid. Of course, "quadband" doesn't mean "unlocked" inthis case -- AT&T still stands in your way regardless of where youplan on using the phone -- but at least you won't be stuck with nothingmore than a fancy lookin' iPod once you hop the pond.
