Quad or Tri; which is it?


May 20, 2006, 8:50 AM
The specifications on the Cingular site list this as a Quad band. But Letstalk offers this for Cingular and says its a Tri band.

Searching the web review sites shows either / both descriptions in many places and Motorola says the phone is quad, but different regions may offer different set ups.

I travel globally on business and need the quad, if someone knows the truth here I would appreciate it.

i just bought the phone and on the phone itself, the network lists it as "quad-band GSM".

It depends on the carrier.

Motorola typically makes all of their GSM phones with quad-band hardware, then gives carriers the option of which bands to enable in firmware.

A carrier might choose tri-band because enabling all four bands requires extra time & money spent on testing and tuning the phone for optimal performance on each band.

The cingular wireless version is QUAD BAND.

)according to phone scoop info(


If you have a different carrier let me know, and I will check the status of their equipment.

Have a great week.
