can i use astra smartphone to US?

GbSb said...

ASTRA is Triband and US mostly uses 850/1900 Mhz frequency allocation. For your phone to work, it must support you country's frequency.

I advised that you to check that first before buying.

"MyPhone A898 is the predecessor of A878,"

MyPhone A898 is the SUCCESSOR of A878. I believe A878 has been on the market for several weeks now while A898 is just about to make its official debut.
