Is My Device Compatible With US Mobile?

In the United States, wireless carriers operate on a range of different frequency bands. In order to be compatible with any given carrier, your device must support the frequency bands which that carrier runs on.

For US Mobile’s prepaid phone plans:

  • Nearly all phones will work on US Mobile for talk, text, and data.
  • Your phone must have 1700 MHz (AWS) to get US Mobile LTE coverage. US Mobile uses 1900 MHz for HSPA+/4G connectivity. Nearly all modern phones have the 1900 MHz band.

Note: That some Android phones and iPhones 5S and below may vary by region, and may not support the same bands in different regions. An easy way to check if your phone will work on the US Mobile network is to check it on our Networks page. In order to find the specific model number for your device, please go to Settings> About Phone/Device.

If your phone isn’t compatible, don’t despair we have a wide selection of compatible, unlocked phones in our store. You can learn more about how to unlock your phone from any carrier by clicking here.

    1. Hi Will,

      The frequencies that you’re looking for are below. Any GSM unlocked phone that support these frequencies will work fine.

      LTE Frequencies:
      1700 MHz & 2100 MHz AWS band 4
      1900 MHz PCS band 2 (in refarmed areas)
      Lower 700 MHz band 12 (in development) / in service in selected areas

      3G/4G Frequencies (WCDMA):
      1700 MHz & 2100 MHz AWS band 4
      1900 MHz PCS band 2 (in refarmed areas)

      2G Frequencies (GSM/GPRS/EDGE):
      1900 MHz PCS band 2

    I have a Verizon Htc droid dna. I am currently not with a provider right now. Is it compatible?

    1. Seems like it supports our frequencies but only up to 3G.

      2G bands CDMA 800 / 1900
      GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
      3G bands CDMA2000 1xEV-DO
      HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
      4G bands LTE band 13(700) – Verizon

      The device wont be able to provide data on 4G/LTE. Everything else should work fine.

        What is the cheapest phone I can buy from you which supports LTE band 12 700 MHz ?.

        It seems that service is not available where I live without this, but I cannot afford an iphone 5 or 6 or similar.

        Thanks
