(GSM/GPRS/EDGE): 850, 900, 1800, and 1900 MHz
UMTS: 850, 900, 1900, and 2100 MHz
HSPA+: 21 Mbit/s;
HSUPA: 5.76 Mbit/s;

If your carrier supports at least one of the above frequencies it will work.

T-Mobile and AT&T work for sure.

answer 1
The computer is an idiot going by the fact that it is a foreign model of the phone. In reality, it will work anywhere that it accepts a connection, meaning if the frequency on the GSM network you're trying to get on is supported by the phone, you will have service. The computer doesn't realise that this is an unlocked phone.

No, it will not work on Verizon. It is a GSM phone, and Verizon uses CDMA and UMTS technology. You can look at the listing of companies at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_wireless_communications_service_providers Any of the companies that list GSM will work with this phone. Outside the U.S., it is generally not a problem since most of the world has standardized on GSM with the exception of Japan and some U.S. companies.

If you buy the unlocked version it will work with any company and every system. Some functions may not work unless you get a data plan or connect it to a wifi internet.

Question

Warranty/Registration in US and Straight Talk Service/SIM?

I've been researching the Samsung Unlocked GSM phones for use with Straight Talk. Have read many accounts of these unlocked/international phones being manufactured for/registered in Mexico and subsequent difficulty with registration and warranty coverage in US - MANY reports of Samsung refusing to honor warranty if not manufactured FOR US, regardless of where purchased. Can anyone speak to this??

Also, do not want T-Mobile service through straight talk with this; shotty coverage where I live and reports of T-Mobile limiting data access on unlocked phones to EDGE - NO 3G!! Do I get an AT&T Compatible phone SIM Card or Unlocked GSM Phone SIM from straight talk??

THANKS!!!!!

I have the International Version and love it. Not sure on the warranty and there are many conflicting answers. I have used a T Mobile sim and get EDGE speeds. I also recently bought an AT&T compatable sim from Straight Talk and get 4G speeds for $45 a month. I just popped in the sim, changed the apn (they show you how) and away you go!Very satisfied.
