Re: 3G PSVita? Import the Hong Kong version.

Jan 19, 2012

Come on.  The guy used the PSVita Hong Kong version with T-Mobile!  If he used AT&T it would be same speed as USA PSVita.  Actually, if he went into the 3G app called "Network Operator" on the Hong Kong PSVita then he could choose the network operator.  If you are using the US version of PSVita, you are STUCK with AT&T!  You are also not able to travel to other countries and use their 3G.

I think the 2G speed he was referring to texting.

Again, you have not provided any links that says Hong Kong PSVita won't work with US carriers.  US PSVita is SIM locked!  That is the only difference.  Hong Kong PSVita will work with ALL WCDMA carriers  (AT&T, T-Mobile, and other local 3G carriers), even in other countries.  It would be stupid to get a SIM locked version when you can get one that you can shop around for cheaper prices.

you have not previded it worked either so we are even. I only sare mine on a youtube video do I care to search it again no i do not.   also he still said it only worked on 2G speed that is what he said. not 3G witch the ps vita is. so that right there says it will not work with 3G. 

will work with 2G speed but to me that is not working. when the ps vita is 3G not 2G.

Re: 3G PSVita? Import the Hong Kong version.

He used a regular 2G T-Mobile SIM card.  The PSVita supports both 2G and 3G.  Come on, please don't spread misinformation.  If you have not verified it yourself, don't spread bad rumors.  The PSVita 3G (Hong Kong version) works with ANY 3G as long as the SIM Card supports it.  You can pop in ANY SIM card from any carrier that supports 3G, and if it only has GSM (2G) it will work with it as well.  HOWEVER, if you get the USA version, you are stuck with AT&T plans.

I have already provided many sources, including my own.  It works with 3G from any carrier.  The China Unicom uses 3G separate from Hong Kong.  Ask around if you don't believe me.  The carriers are different.  The Hong Kong PSVita 3G works in China, Japan, Hong Kong, USA, and any other country.  But the USA PSVita is SIM locked to USA ONLY, and not only that... AT&T ONLY!

AT&T ONLY!

"However, it was only able to receive 2G speeds" he tryed 3G speeds it did not work it was only able to recive 2G speeds. read what it says in the site posted. don't be mad on what they say.  it was only able to recice 2G speeds read the link you posted.

let me post the hole thing

"When we first saw the PS Vita at E3, it all seemed like a futuristic system that we would never actually own. With only a month before the PSV’s North American release, we got our hands on one of Hong Kong’s 3G models and tried it out. Aside from its technical superiority, the PSV is filled with smart design decisions that make it the premiere portable device for gamers to anticipate.

There are several things that players will notice about the system once they hold it in their hands: it’s wide yet slender, features a large 5-inch screen that is incredibly lightweight, and a wildly different interface. While the sleek nature of the system is appealing, I couldn’t help but feel paranoid about putting it into my pocket. With such a large screen, the system felt like it was bound to snap and was just plain uncomfortable in my pocket.

During gameplay, however, the system was a marvel to hold. The PSV’s dual analog sticks and overall sizable buttons felt welcoming, as though a portable was finally large enough for my gigantic hands. The system’s portability was ultimately sacrificed for a more engaging gaming experience. It’s a trade-off that I won’t mind, as long as I had something other than my jeans’ pocket in which to store the PSV. Conveniently, games include useful links to the game’s website, company’s website, or PSN store for easy access. The multitouch capacitive touchscreen is duly sensitive and precise, making it leaps and bounds above the 3DS’s outdated resistive touchscreen and giving it many more possibilities instead."

Some browsing through the system’s applications quickly showed some notable improvements over other systems’ similar counterparts. The Playstation Store itself is pretty easy to browse, featuring categories on the left ranging from the games and add-ons to movie downloads. Fans of digital content will be excited to find that retail games are also available as digital downloads. Near, the PSV’s attempt to connect nearby gamers, shows different users on a map including their PSN usernames, recent games, and trophies. This feature most mirrors the original Nintendo DS’s PictoChat that allowed users to chat with others nearby; however, Near works on a much larger scale, allowing users to see others several kilometers away as well. Security concerns may arise, but since the unit was in Chinese, we were not able to test out different settings.

 

In order to receive internet signal, the 3G model includes a slot for a SIM card. Curious to see if any SIM card would work, we inserted a T-Mobile SIM card with data on it and, to our amazement, it was able to receive data. However, it was only able to receive 2G speeds, telling us that the system is on the same band as the AT&T network. While the SIM card was in the slot, the PSV gave notifications on any text messages that arrived. Unfortunately, the system was incapable of replying to text messages or receiving calls. Perhaps hackers may work on a mod for this in the future, but at least existing AT&T customers who wish to have data anywhere can use the system’s data capabilities, given that they are willing to miss some calls. Keep in mind that the model we tested was from Hong Kong and unlocked - a feature that may not hold true for the North American release.

With only a month to go before its North American release, the system is looking better and better. There are some design decisions already that some may question, but the trade offs are definitely worth it. We look forward to its release and will be waiting by the door for its arrival come February 22.

Re: 3G PSVita? Import the Hong Kong version.

He popped in a regular T-Mobile SIM, NOT a 3G enabled SIM.  I have also verified that the Hong Kong PSVita works with 3G speeds using Unicom (a different carrier than those in hong kong).  So PSVita Hong Kong will work with 3G speeds as long as the SIM card supports 3G.  You have not provided any links saying the PSVita from Hong Kong won't work with any carrier.  Why?  Because it is not sim locked.

Re: 3G PSVita? Import the Hong Kong version.

Jan 19, 2012

I've already told you...  The Hong Kong PSVita works fine with 3G on Unicom.  IT works fine in DOCOMO.  IT works fine with AT&T.  The guy popped in a regular voice T-Mobile.  Please know more about cellphones technology before arguing with me:

Here:

http://www.edepot.com/iphone.html

http://www.edepot.com/playstation.html

Read the parts about 2G, 3G and LTE.

2G is GSM.

3G is WCDMA

2G is sometimes CDMA (but not relevant here because the PSVita uses WCDMA).

Go to any T-Mobile website and know what technology they use.

They have GSM, WCDMA, and other plans.  These are defined in the SIM card.

I have already provided proof that PSVita 3G Hong Kong version works fine with 3G using a 3G sim card.  The guy in the link used a regular cellphone T-Mobile.  Again, you have not provided any proof Hong Kong version won't work with 3G outside of Hong Kong.  I am telling you, it is the SIM card.  Not the PSVita.  The PSVita you have to worry about is whether it is SIM Locked or not.  And USA PSVita is SIM LOCKED!  The Hong Kong is NOT sim locked!

no where did they say they limited  hell according to what they say they did not limit it. they said however it was only able to receive 2G speeds not that they only used a 2G data plan. no they do not.

Re: 3G PSVita? Import the Hong Kong version.

Jan 19, 2012

Well, why don't you take my word then?  I took a Hong Kong PSVita, popped in a 3G SIM card, and it runs in 3G.  It lights up 3G on MY PSVita Hong Kong version.  I have the device, I have a 3G SIM outside of Hong Kong, I verified it works in 3G speed.

I also know that the US PSVita is sim locked, so you are STUCK with it.  No PSVita outside USA.  No PSVita without AT&T.

I'm trying to help, so stop spreading misinformation.
