Xperia arc hits the FCC with AT&T bandsThe Xperia arc has landed at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which means a US release is most likely on the horizon. It looks like the Xperia arc will be headed to AT&T as the device has been approved for the company’s 3G and GSM frequencies. This includes quad-band GSM capabilities and support for WCDMA bands I, II, V and VI.

Those of you on T-Mobile US who may have been thinking of picking up this handset sim-free are out of luck as there is no support for T-Mobile’s 3G bands. You can click here for the documents released to the FCC which includes teardown pictures, user manuals and other technical documents.

    I am sure this is T-Mobile US only and not UK right?

  • yes, off course. All these sites do only report for US carriers. In Europe we don’t have the same problems, as (almost – the exceptions are LTE (as not all carriers have developed LTE networks yet), WiMax & some other uncommon standards) all phones work with all carriers in EU. :) So, as soon as the Europe version of the Arc is launched, it would work in every EU country

    That’s right. T-Mobile UK have already confirmed that they will stock the Xperia arc in April.

    Thanks for the reply. It was obvious though. I just woke up but my brain didn’t LOL

    FCC usually gets Canadian phones as a courtesy. T-Mobile US users can usually use Euro phones

    Unfortunate not this time because the 1700 band is nowhere to find even in the european arc,
    For me it means a switch to at&t with a etf of $200, WTF!

    This information is incorrect, T-Mobile USA and AT&T will each have there own version of this phone, here is the link to prove it http://theunlockr.com/2009/12/23/fcc-clears-xperia-x10-in-both-t-mobile-us-3g-and-att-us-3g/

    Hello, stupid. Your link is to the X10. That means that YOUR information is incorrect. You’re funny, stupid.
