Re: US gsm & global gsm

You'll want to go with the Global model if you plan to use on AT&T. The US Model is optimized for T-Mobile and includes an extra band for AWS.





Bands (by model)


US GSM Model: 

GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

UMTS/HSPA+ (850, 1700 (AWS), 1900 MHz)

Global GSM Model:

GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

UMTS/HSPA+ (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)
