Carrier Networks
 CDMA BandsInfoCDMA BandsCode Division Multiple Access is the method in which voice communication is sent over the network using a spread-spectrum technology. Depending on the service provider, it uses one or more bands: 800, 1900, and 2100 MHz.800,1900 MHz 
line 
 GPRSInfoGPRSGeneral Packet Radio Service is a method to send and receive data faster than using the voice channel, but it is still painfully slow. Class 12 devices are the fastest at a maximum of 48 kbps, while Class 2 devices are the slowest. It is considered a 2G service.Supported  
line 
 EDGEInfoEDGEEnhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution, also called EGPRS, greatly increases the data speeds over GPRS up to 384 kbps. Class 12 devices are the fastest, with Class 2 providing the slowest EDGE service. It is considered a 2.5G service, and is slower than 3G/4G services.Supported  
line 
 UTMS BandsInfoUTMS BandsUniversal Mobile Telecommunications System is a mobile communication technology based in part on the GSM/EDGE standards, but much faster. UTMS is also known as WCDMA, and both are considered a 3G service. Depending on the service provider, it uses one or more bands from 700 to 2100 MHz.850,1900 MHz 
line 
 CDMA2000InfoCDMA2000This is a 3G standard to communicate voice and data through a network. The first implementation was 1xRTT (1 times Radio Transmission Technology) and has a theoretical maximum data rate of 153 kbps. An upgraded standard called 1xEV-DO Rev. A, or sometimes shorted to EV-DO (Evolution-Data Optimized) has a peak data rate of 3000 kbps.1xRTT,1xEV-DO rev. A  
Connectivity
 WiFiInfoWiFiA localized wireless internet connection standard that operates in the 2.4 GHz band. Most WiFi implementations support the b and g standards (at 11 Mbps and 55 Mbps maximum data rates respectively). The newer n standard offers up to 110 Mbps in some situations, with compatible equipment.802.11 b/g  
line 
 BluetoothInfoBluetoothThis is an open-standard used to transfer audio and data over very short distances on the 2.4 GHz band. Version 2.0 and 2.1 include EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) for faster data rates over the version 1 standard. Depending on the implementation and power level it may be designed to operate over distances of 3 feet to 300 feet. Version 2.x uses a data rate of 3 Mbps, and version 3.0 uses 24 Mbps.2.0 + EDR
