ZTE lists the frequencies of the phones as

  • GSM 850/1900
  • UMTS B2/4/5
  • LTE B2/4/5/12/13
  • LTE B25/26/41

Those frequencies should work here in the United States on the likes of AT&T and T-Mobile.

Right now, ZTE is showing the ZTE Tempo GO as being sold out on their site.  That may not mean a whole lot given that the phone was just announced overnight.  It could simply be a placeholder of sorts.  If you are interested in the $80, be sure to keep checking the site.  There is no word on if other retailers will be selling it.
