    I have a question about cell phones. If you have a quad band phone and your moving from germany to america, will you be able to transfer the service of the phone to a provider in the states. I realize this may not be the place for this, but i dont have an account with GN forum so i put it here.

    you phone has the GSM bands GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz. 850 and 1900 are used in the US so it should work...
