It isn't GSM whatsoever. It's a 3G phone, otherwise known as WCDMA or
Wideband CDMA. GSM and 3G/WCDMA will stick around for a little bit,
but pushes into 3.5G and 4G networks, if handled correctly, will see
great networks across all continents. I don't like network/operator
locked phones either, but then it only takes me a few minutes to
unlock them. :-P
