    Will Passport's lte and umts radio work in all world regions where
    such mobile networks are operating?
    One can consider Passport as own next smartphone (decision it to be made within next 4 weeks)
    however only if the requirement described above is met.
    Purchase will take place at european local retailer (online, or a shop), but surely not from a network operator.
    It means the device will not have sim-lock, nor any branding.
    It is essential the device provides Internet connection through LTE, or HSDPA/HSUPA
    in every world region such technology is operating.

    How does it look in these regards with Passport?

    It has listed bands. Just look at them and compare them to the carriers you'll be using worldwide.

    You don't have to be an expert.

    And it's always a good time to learn.

    Just hit Google, or search wikipedia for the frequencies for the carriers in countries you want to go to.

    And look up the frequencies on the passport.

    And see if they match. That's all.

    It is time consuming and work intensive task to find out it by searching web.

    I want take from the shelf, pay, unpack it, enjoy it.
    Few web sources will give complete and reliable information.
    The vendor will know the world regions its device work well and regions it won't,
    not without a reason it delivers plenty of variants to providers world wide.
    Despite the question of be able all these informations properly to be properly
    interpreted by a layman as me.

    I will contact BB to get the answer hopefully they will help. No much time left for our decision.

    Ok, shopblackberry lists all the bands on the passport. So that's one site.

    Wikipedia has a list of all the carriers and the countries that they belong to and the frequencies.

    It took you longer to post this, than the search would have.

    The stickied thread below on this forum lists frequencies and supported carriers. Use the browser to view because the CB app doesn't seem to show the image.
