An interesting feature is the tool that let you compare models.

Network Bands (Coverage)
In Coverage we can “discover” interesting bands operating in each country. By choosing to Italy, we see that the bands there are in operation: GSM 900/1800 and UMTS 2100.(Note that can be different when you visit this page - new bands can be added).
The purpose of this link is to allow you to choose a model that has the band of your country, but as a bonus we have information on which bands and technologies are available in each country
Of course this information is not official, but as the site is always updated, it is very likely to be right. Compare with the information for your country and see!
