    Should do . I think that the GSM side is the same world over . It's the 3G that is different,..

    As long if it works I am fine. Internet on phones here is slow and expensive. Thanks

    I think that TIM has 3G on 1900 and 2100.

    1800 is for HSPA+ or LTE.

    The Global GSM model will probably work best.

    The Global GSM variant only gives you 2G speeds in the US due to the frequencies that it uses. I have the US GSM variant and I get normal HSPA+ speeds.

    You will get 3G speeds with the global model on AT&T. You will get 3G speeds with the global model on T-Mobile in areas where T-Mobile has re-farmed their 1900 MHz spectrum to 3G use.

    Tmobile HSPA+ is 3G, right?
