What is a quad band cell phone? Tri band?

Category: Cell Phones


Quad Band Cell PhonesA quad band cell phone is a type of cell phone that is able to communicate on all of the key GSM frequencies used by most cell phone carrier networks. They are advantageous for users who travel often and require cell phone service outside of their carrier’s area. Quad band phones will allow users to access frequencies on four bands: 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 850 MHz, and 1900 MHz’s. As long as your service provider has an active agreement with the network owner in that part of the world, a quad band cell phone should be able to get reception and make calls. Tri band cell phones are almost identical to quad band except they are limited to three frequencies. So in some parts of the world they may not get coverage.
