I have a Nokia 1208 bought in Sweden with a pre-paid SIM-card from Telia. Will I be able to use my mobile phone in the USA? I'm not talking about expensive roaming fees or so, just whether it's possible at all. How can I find out apart from actually going there?

According to the phone specification, the phone has two versions:

  • GSM 900 / 1800
  • GSM 850 / 1900 - US version

Obviously you have the EU version (GSM 900/1800) which will not work with the US networks which are (GSM 850/1900).
