Phone Modes and What it means.

by RustyNeal    Nov 1, 2012, 3:20 PM

I'm hoping to get a good technical person that can render authoritative information. Smile
My basic question is this: Does the greater number of modes (combinations of frequencies and technologies) give one phone over another a better chance of getting a signal? As an example: if I use the Motorola Razr M, which has the following modes:
LTE 750
WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100
CDMA 850/900
GSM 850/900/1800/1900

Can I expect it to have better reception than say an iPhone 4S that only has the following modes:
WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100
CDMA 850/900
GSM 850/900/1800/1900

Or worse yet, an iPhone 4 (CDMA) that only has:
CDMA 850/1900
