    You should check which three bands it supports. If bought in the US, a
    "Tri-band" phone might support 850/1800/1900 rather than 900/1800/1900. If
    this was the case, only the 1800 would be any use in the U.K. How much
    difference it would make in 'real life' situations, I have no idea.

    1800 is used practically in all of the UK by O2, T-Mobile, Orange, and
    Vodafone so there are no issues with a SIM card from any of those
    carriers.

    Yeah, I figured. I didnt have any specific details so I thought I would
    point out that there could be some difference.

    However, O2 & Vodafone only use a handful of 1800 band microcells to fill in
    gaps in their 900 band coverage, a phone that doesn't work on 900 band would
    be of *extremely* limited use (to the point of uslessness) on either O2 or
    Vodaphone in the UK.
