If there were a dual-SIM variant of the Moto G for use in the US, would you buy one?

I'm thinking it would be nice to have both an AT&T SIM and a T-Mobile SIM in a single phone. You could use the carrier that has the best signal in your local area. This would be very useful for people who travel to different states all the time. Also, I've heard AT&T's signal penetrates better through walls. (Having T-Mobile doesn't help if you can't get a signal inside your office, for example.)

I've seen dual-SIM Moto G phones on sale on the internet, but I think they're imports that don't support the 1700/2100 band for 3G on T-Mobile.

I bought one here in New Zealand. As long as your second SIM is on a carrier that still does GSM/2G your OK but if both SIMs are 3G only then you have to manually select the one you want. The idle one goes off line. Because of the lack of concurrent dual SIM 3G support I gave mine to my wife to use as a single SIM phone..

Hi,

The imported dual SIM version support three bands for 3G (900/1900/2100 MHz) from which one is compatible with T-Mobile (2100), and for 2G it works as a quad band device (850/900/1800/1900) . Then, you might be able to use the imported version in the US right away.

By the way, what are the bands of AT&T in the US?

3G = 850 and 1900.
