What Is GSM?
GSM phones require a small electronic chip, called a SIM card, to be inserted into a slot in the handset. This international SIM card is the "brain" of your phone - it contains your cell phone number, your phone book, and all of your registration information. Most companies with GSM service provide you access to over 320 GSM networks in over 140 countries.
What are Unlocked GSM Phones?
Unlocked GSM phones are either a) phones which are directly from the manufacturer which were never locked, or b) phones from a carrier which have been modified to openly work on any network.
What are the different frequencies of GSM that I need?
Most of the world's GSM networks operate at 900MHz and 1800MHz. However, in order to use the networks in the USA and Canada you will need a handset that is also capable of operating at the 1900MHz frequency. Most phones are now either "dual" "tri" or "quad band" (includes 850MHz) to serve most of the world.
