    Can a US gsm phone be used in Europe?

    I just want to make sure that a friend's unlocled GSM phone can be used in Europe with a local Sim? Thanks in advance.

    If it has the needed band(s) then it should. May need to adjust APN.

    Thanks! I'm mostly concerned with phone calls but I'd think that part should be OK. Good to know, thanks again.

    Look up your friends phone - if it's a quad-bander you may be ok. Some European carriers need UMTS phones ( Hutchison, I think ) and then you need to verify that your US UMTS phone is "global" - that is, it has 2100 and runs both US and Europe patterns.

    Thanks. I was just searching via Google and I think it will be OK. Just no LTE but I doubt my friend cares about that.
