    Which variant has more bands? I will be using the phone both in the US, and overseas (in the UK). I know the T-Mobile version will work on AT&T's network. But can the same be said the other way around?

    Thanks for the help guys!

    That is an interesting question... I don't know about T-Mobile, but I have heard that Verizon operates on different bands than AT&T.
    I recently purchased the European version of the G3 to use in Canada, but I discovered that I would only get 3g, not LTE data speeds as the LTE bands used by Canadian carriers differed from those used by European ones. I ended up returning the phone. Why have all that power and not be able to use it.
    I then hacked if AT&T G3 version was compatible with Canadian carriers... Turn out it was the same thing. There LTE bands were different from Canadian carriers as well!! I should add that I am with Bell.
    I ended up doing a lot of research on which carriers used what bands. It was quite interesting. This is another way for carriers to lock customers into their plans. Frustrating to say the least.

    I don't know the details of the bands. AT&T has worked fine in Europe for me. T Mobile is supposed to as well. But T Mobile does not charge extra for international roaming, which makes their case compelling.
