I've been using an unlocked 800 on At&t for a couple months. Working fine. What do you mean rm801? I use it mostly on WiFi being out in the sticks with edge service. But edge is faster than I expected. Occasionally H shows up in the status bar for hspa+. Voice quality is vg.

Thanks for the input. It's nice to hear from someone that's satisfied without the H+ data connection.
I've been doing quite a bit of research about the different variants of the Lumia 800. Apparently, the rm-801 (Europe, Asia) supports HSDPA 900 / 1900 / 2100 while the rm-819 supports HSDPA 850 (AT&T's H+) / 900 / 1900 / 2100. I hope this all make sense.

I am using my 800 in at&t no issues with it at all. Call quality is good I get between 3 and 4 MBPS on HSPA no + though. On WP7 thats not bad for data speeds. I live in Fort Worth, Texas.

Have the unlocked international version. And yes, I have had problems on AT&T with 3G/HSDPA. As I understand it, the international version only has one of the two main 3G bands that AT&T uses. In places where I normally have 3-4 bars of 3G on my Focus, I would have ~1 bar on my Lumia, toggling between that and EDGE (which drains the battery quite quickly!)
I wish this wasn't the case, as I really wanted to start using the 800 as my main device...

In Chicago with the 801 on AT&T - we're blanketed with hspa+ here (i think 1900). Lumia should be able to take advantage of that, but I'm not sure that's the case.
What APN settings are you folks using? I've tried the "wap.cingular" and "phone" apns while selecting ATT 3g and ATT LTE, but I can't reliably tell which one works the best.

http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...-settings.html and I've seen reports that this helps on a variety of devices. I imagine that the lumia won't automatically pull the phone APN, but there's no way to actually check that i think?
