Unlocked cellphones in the Philippines

Recommended Posts

The phone I pointed out is so cheap that you can give it to someone when you leave

it is about 100 usd bought in e-mall or sm-city

the one I pointed out supports fdd-lte b1, b2, b3, b5, b7, b8 and b20

According to THIS PAGE, only Bands B3/B7/B20 so if true, it might not work on 

AT&T 2, 4, 5, 17 1900, 1700 abcde, 700 bc

T-Mobile 2, 4, 12 1900, 1700 def, 700 a

but all these frequencies confuse my poor little brain. 

It also says 



2G Network

GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900MHz


Which concerns me since carriers in the U.S. are doing away with 2G, thus with my limited knowledge, I am not sure that phone would work on most U.S. carriers.

Anyway as I have written above, it is complicated, thus it is best to double and triple check all frequencies that a person wishes to use before buying any phone that is sold in any country.

That page is wrong

I got the bands supported from the box the phone was in

it does not support the 700 band

2g 3g etc has to do with data  the phone will work for text and voice and 3g data and 4g/lte
