The GSM technology is the most advanced among them and currently around 70 per cent of mobile users in the world are hooked to it.

SIM free phones refer to GSM phones which are available without a connection or line. SIM free phones are never locked by a particular network service provider. You can buy any handset available under the SIM free phone banner and use SIM card of any service provider. Tri-band SIM Free phones work on any GSM network service in the world, but you must insert a SIM with a compatible frequency that operates in the area you want to use your phone.
