Rated:5 out of 5 stars

The LG G4015 operates in two modes: GSM 850 and GSM 1900.

In the U.S., there are two GSM carriers compatible with the phone:
Cingular and T-Mobile.

Crayton Electronics - G4015



Other carriers such as Verizon and Sprint are incompatible with the
phone as they do not use GSM.
search strategy:
G4015 "gsm 1900" cingular

I hope this helps.

The phone is compatible with the GSM networks, but be forewarned that
cingular "locks" its cell phones, so you will probably have to find a
place to "unlock" the handset so that you can use another company's
SIM cards, etc... to make the phone work.
