    You only need a tri-band for USA. The Nokia 6300 is a good phone.

    hmm, well, he asked for quad band, maybe he's going elsewhere.

    thanks anyway.

    Quad band cell phones is standard for mobile phones supporting four frequency bands of GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz. Generally speaking, Quadband phones can work in all GSM networks worldwide, no matter where they are located. Tri-band mobile phones describe those cell phones which support GSM900/1800/1900MHz. Mainly, GSM1900MHz is essential in the most phone carriers of U.S./Canada/Latin America and GSM850MHz is necessary in the most phone carriers of U.S./Canada/Latin America. Obviously, one quad-band phone must work properly in phone networks triband phones require, but not like that opposite as quad band networks cover tri-band networks, and triband networks are included in quadband networks.
    However, if you are using AT&T Mobility in USA, ]onThesource.com highly suggests you would better buy quad band mobiles, or else, your future phone will display “emergency”. If your current SIM card belongs to T-Mobile in USA, you can both choose quad-band cell phones or tri-band mobile phones, because T-Mobile only requires GSM1900MHz, and quadband cell phone or tri-band cellular phone covers it already. Finally, quad band cell phone can roam in GSM networks all over the globe.
