    The Evolve uses the following bands

    Technology
    GSM / HSPA / LTE
    2G bandsGSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - SIM 1 & SIM 2 (dual-SIM model only)
    3G bandsHSDPA 900 / 2100
    4G bandsLTE band 1(2100), 3(1800), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900), 40(2300), 41(2500)
    SpeedHSPA 42.2/5.76 Mbps, LTE-A (2CA) Cat6 300/50 Mbps
    GPRSYes
    EDGEYes

    The following bands are used in the USA

    CARRIERNETWORK4G LTE FREQUENCIES
    AT&TGSM/HSPA+1900, 1700/2100, 850, 700, 2300
    VERIZONCDMA1900, 1700/2100, 850, 700
    T-MOBILEGSM/HSPA+1900, 1700/2100, 700, 600
    SPRINTCDMA1900, 850, 2500

    so in theory the device may work dependant on which carrier you use BUT (expert please confirm) connectivity may be patchy at best and it would very much depend on your location and if the band used in your location is compatible with the device .....

    Sparingly as for anybody visiting for a few days would expect before using another phone borrowed or purchased cheap in discount store. Neither AT&T nor T-Mobile have much band overlap with Evolve, so call quality, data speeds and coverage suffers. Forget VZW and Sprint as it be almost to completely unusable.

    So what Amaroni said just translated into Floridian speak......
