Default Will unlocked Curve work on any Service provider

Please Login to Remove!

Will my unlocked Curve 8300 from AT&T work on any Service provider? I am selling it and want to be sure I can tell a buyer where it will and won't work.

Current prospective buyer is asking about T-Mobile, for example.

Thanks,
John

Yes it will work on any GSM carrier. T-Mobile is GSM.

Thanks Troy, do you know where I can get a list of carriers and if they are GSM or not?

Thanks again Troy,

That's an easy one.
Verizon and Sprint are the big CDMA carriers.
Just about every other carrier on the entire planet is GSM.

This website lists the GSM providers around the world. Note that some of the company legal names are different than the marketing names.
