F240 is korean version, E988 is the international version. I suggest you research what LTE bands the phone companies over there use first. .

According to GSM arena these are the bands that work on the E988:


GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - all versions(2g)
HSDPA 850 / 900 / 2100 - E988 (3G)
LTE 1800 / 2600 - E988

Xperia Ion
Running Aoba_PureBlack_Ultimate Privacy(sold! Really miss it though)

Lg Optimus G(AT&T) (Sold 3 of em so far)
Running EG8 Rom

Samsung Galaxy S
(loaner from a friend-returned)

BLU Dash 4.0 (JB 4.2 version)
Loaned it to my bro while he fixes his S3

Lg Optimus G Pro(finally!!)

Does the E988 variant also has an extra battery and a charging dock? I don't think they gave it in the international version.. Isn't it?

I have the e988. I got the charging dock with the plug adapter for US but no extra battery. You can get one on amazon for under $15.

Correction to my earlier reply. I meant I received the regular wall charger and not the charging dock.

I would be careful as I have an E988 but there is no 4G. On the box it only has 2G and 3G. I think it matters which country the E988 is from as there are different versions (they also have different amounts of storage). Mine is from taiwan by the way.
