When the phone recently passed through the FCC, no word was printed about 3G frequencies for U.S. use. Digging into the paperwork, it seems that the test lab asked LG why there was no 3G support for the States and the response simply left more questions than answers. As we've reported, the guys at Engadget Mobile have a theory that the 3G bands for the BL40 will be enabled once the handset is launched by Telus as the Canadian carrier's first GSM phone on its new HSPA network. Whatever the reason for the current omission of the frequencies, you just know that a device like this, with a special top-of-the-line Black Label name and an amazing design, will not settle for anything but 3G speed by the time it is launched in the U.S., whenever that is.
