    Yes. As long the area has GSM1900 signals. Many parts of USA are still not equipped with GSM1900 infrastructure, but relying on older systems such as AMPS and TDMA.

    i'm at a complete blur when talking abt these systems
    haha

    So only GSM 1900 signals can be used for this phone? The other old systems will not be able to be used on the phone?

    Actually, it is really very simple... if you still remember what is PCN, which SingTel Mobile used to name the GSM 1800 network... And the common mentioned GSM is referring to the GSM 900 network... Any Tri-Band digital mobile phone would be equipped with not only GSM 900 & GSM 1800, but also GSM 1900 network too.

    To give you a better picture, SingTel Mobile run GSM 900 & GSM 1800, while M1 run only the GSM 900 and StarHub run only the GSM 1800.

    And in US, as long as they are still running on the AMPS or TDMA, then the GSM 1900 is useless over there...

    Unless, one is a frequent traveller to US, or countries that support GSM 1900, otherwise, Tri-Band is pretty a gimmick by mobile company to sell their phones.

    Alternative, if one has a GSM 1900 within his/her home... hehehe...

    actually the 1900 network is USA is quite extensive. covers almost all big cities and growing. If you are travelling to USA and wants to bring a phone along, either buy a tri-band phone or rent one from your telco. As far as I know, all 3 telcos here have got roaming agreement with the telcos in the states and coverage is pretty good.

    up to now, only korea and japan uses different systems. If you're travelling there and need to be contacted, you need to rent a handset from your telco.

    do pm me if you need specifics.
