This is a joke, right? In Europe GSM frequencies are 900 and 1800MHz,
in USA 850 and 1900

The freerunner (GTA02) has 2 versions working in three frequencies:
USA: 850/1800/1900MHz
Europe: 900/1800/1900MHz

The only dangerous thing is that if you are out of 1800MHz coverage
you won't be able to get the 900MHz frequency.
