Re: Phone Modes and What it means.

Each mode works with a certain technology and each technology has it bands, each one of these bands work with a certain carrier.
A phone that has more bands on the GSM mode will most likely be able to roam onto another provider's network. Not necessarily have better signal.

There's something else about what you call modes. ... »

Modes and bands are not the same.
An unlocked phone with more bands will have the chance to work with other carriers if you don't like the service from your provided and want to try something else off-contract.
