The LG Optimus F3Q actually supports most frequencies and protocols (850/900/1800/1900 MHz GSM; Bands I/II/IV/V UMTS*. GPRS Class 12, EDGE, UMTS (W-CDMA), HSDPA*), it's just carrier locked to T-mobile. They will unlock it after 40 days and you can move it. I had a friend of mine do a straw purchase for me and they didn't give him any trouble. AT&T helped me get it set up for use on my contract.
