    The SIM is for the LTE portion.

    I'm pretty sure that the Moto X isnt considered a global device. If you want to use it on GSM networks you would need to get the phone with the GSM radios.

    Phone arena has the GSM and CDMA models all listed under seperate model numbers with the primary changes between them being OS and radios.

    Most Verizon LTE phones have GSM support.

    You are correct, after a little digging it looks like the Verizon variant supports the following radios:

    LTE 750 / 1700
    WCDMA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
    CDMA 850 / 1900
    GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900

    However, OP states his particular model reads US Cellular, the radios supported under that specific model are:

    LTE 700 / 850 / 1700
    CDMA 850 / 1900
