It's 3G. My phone is showing HSDPA and I can confirm my data speed isn't any slower than before.
So I had to give them my IMEI number to take off my old one for the Backflip. But I didn't tell I had a Nexus 1. I just told them it's not an AT&T phone. No problems changing and I am now back on the old $30 unlimited data/text plan.
You can go here to change your IMEI number w/o even talking to anyone
I'm thinking you don't need the smartphone plan because AT&T don't have these IMEI numbers for N1 because it's not a subsidized phone. And because of that, they can't deny the change in service because their system doesn't recognize the N1 as being a smart phone.
Let's see how it runs for the next couple of days.
Why not use GV SMS instead of AT&T SMS?
You can save $15 a month that way.
I had the 15 dollar data plan, and one day I received a text message from A&TT it said that since I had a smartphone I was required to get the 30 dollar data plan. Somehow at&t network recognise it was a smartphone and added this plan automatically.
