I suppose you could probably find a chipset that doesn't do all four GSM
frequency bands, but that would be silly.  For some reason, five-band
WCDMA doesn't seem to be as common as it should be, but 850/1900/2100
is common enough.  Leaves T-Mobile US out in the cold, but their fault
for picking a weird place to put their UMTS.
