    Network/frequency bands for Moto G

    How to see/read off network/frequency bands for a particular Moto G in hand?

    For example, I have Moto G XT1032 8GB Virgin Mobile Canada (Bell Canada).

    Would its UMTS/HSPA bands be as for US GSM Model: UMTS/HSPA+ 850, 1700 (AWS), 1900 MHz?

    Or would it be as for Global GSM Model: UMTS/HSPA+ 850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz?

    Or even something else?

    It should be the US version.
    Un-Rogered, and getting better 'value'.

    I thought so, too. But, it is not, according to a FutureShop description:
    Supported 3G Modes/Bands 850/900/1900/2100 MHz

    I googled XT1032 and it seems like it's the global version. Bell probably doesn't want people unlocking them and taking them to Wind/Mobilicity/Videotron.
    Carriers I've used: Sprint, T-Mobile, Cricket, AT&T, Verizon, Page Plus, Virgin Mobile, Movistar, AT&T Mexico, Telcel, Straight Talk, RingPlus.

    It looks like they chosen the G model, to sell the G LTE as an 'upgrade'. That one has all the freqs you want.

    What do you mean by "the freqs you want"? Does "G LTE" support all the bands/frequencies used by all cell providers in all counties/world-wide (not only US/Canada)?

    "All the frequencies you want". Have a look: http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/produ...173067b0e9en02

    I would think it supports most of them.

    Its not the US Moto G but the GSM Global XT1032, the US is the XT1034. So it won't have the 1700mhz bands for Wind/Mobilicity/Videotron.

    The G LTE isn't even sold by the same carrier in Canada. Only Belus has the original G, Frogido never released it, and then put out the G LTE exclusively.
