Default [Q] How to differentiate between Moto G US GSM and Global GSM?

Hello,

My sister lives in Canada and is on the wind network, which uses the AWS frequency. I found out that the Moto G US GSm version will be compatible with Wind Canada (since it supports AWS).

I wanted to buy this as a gift for her birthday so I ordered the 16GB US GSM Moto G from amazon usa and posted it to her via UPS. She got it today but is having difficulty setting up internet, I mean it is supposed to "just work" right?

So I fear that maybe amazon has sent me the Global GSM by mistake.

is there anyway I can identify the phone? I mean will the about section in settings be able to tell me if its US GSM or global GSM?

Thank you

You can tell by the model number:
XT1032 Global GSM
XT1034 US GSM (T-Mobile)

If she gets Wind Home coverage, calls and texts, she's got AWS HSPA signal and the right model. Getting the internet to work from there is probably just a matter of checking APN settings.
