It’s ready to run on 3G networks in the U.S. (850/1900 MHz UMTS), enabling fast downloads and streaming multimedia.

This unlocked cell phone can be used with a GSM network service provider and it provides quad-band connectivity (850/900/1800/1900 MHz).

In areas of the U.S. not served by a 3G network, or in foreign territories, you’ll continue to receive data service via the EDGE network (depending on network compatibility).

With the A2DP Bluetooth profile, you can stream your music to a pair of compatible Bluetooth stereo headphones.
