Requires a microSIM card (not included)

We saw yesterday that we had rather thin specs on the Moto G 2nd Gen page. Look for that situation to be improved soon. However, I can't confirm the exact bands this minute (though I suspect the list for Moto G is going to be very close, less the 4G LTE options)/

Please do not PM me - if you have issues, search the forums for threads on your topic and post there, or start a new thread. Thanks!

I'm thinking about buying this phone for my mom, She's on AT&T currently with an iPhone 4. I don't think she would care if it has LTE or not but, I think it's good that it has HSPA+ at least. She should see a nice bump in speed from her iPhone. Will it make a difference if i buy the Global GSM Model or should I stick with the US GSM Model?

If she's staying on AT&T then I think either would work, but I'd choose the Global GSM model. The US model is optimized for T-Mobile.
