Voice should be fine. Unless you have the following frequencies you'll get 2G instead of 3G for data. 2G isn't bad if you are just looking at News site. Streaming will be extremely poor at best.
AT&T uses UMTS/WCDMA 850/1900 for 3G
That's from T-Mobile right? T-Mobile uses UMTS/WCDMA 1700/2100aws for 3G
This is one of the reasons why all GSM phones should have pentaband. Then all frequencies are covered. My Nokia N8 has pentaband and it works fine on AT&T or T-Mobile.

If you always around wifi, it'll be fine. If not, I'd reconsider getting one with AT&T's frequencies for HSPA+

The Radar is 4G and in the engadget review they said that it was getting 4G on AT&T (They think the 850 band)
Went back and checked, it reads like this:
After a little experimentation with this model, we found that T-Mo's version also supports faux-G on one of AT&T's bands once unlocked (hint: it's likely the 850MHz spectrum).
