Anonymous, 24 Jun 2016never trust gearbest, check their review and you will know why. please beware.Good point. Always make research and pay to detail specification specially network compatibility with local carrier. Chinese cellphone maker make a lot good product with reasonable price compare to the old players, but at this time some of them still only selling product in mainland china only and some of them selling product by region and step by step (Europe, India, SouthEast Asia, Australia etc). Maybe in the coming year they will fell CONFIDENT selling globally in one strike.
Globally? no, SEA countries excluded. North and south poles excluded.
Simply stay away from Gearbest. Check their Facebook page for customer complaints

"gearbest.com" Redmi 3s presale (not by Xiaomi) and they shipp to USA, but please look at specification and network. Compare with US network. Is it work in the US?

I guess many leading chinese e-commerce sites like aliexpress , jd.com ships internationally many of the models not officially launched in other countries.. This is nothing new for this model also to ship internationally. One has to pay import duty in many countries. As a matter fact bandwidth for 4g wont be fully compatible and no official warranty. Hence a dilemma for xiaomi as well to release such a model globally ? Also miui (xiaomi interface) upgrade is not same for china vis a vis rest of the world.

AnonD-407852, 23 Jun 2016What about frequency band coverage?.. Does it support both ATT & T-mobile?. What about Warranty?no AT&T or T-mobile, maybe Sprint on Band 41?
AnonD-407852, 23 Jun 2016What about frequency band coverage?.. Does it support both ATT & T-mobile?. What about Warranty?It is just seller can sell and send this cellphone to US, not Xiaomi. 4G LTE is not compatible with T-Mobile and AT&T. No guarantee from Xiaomi.
Chinese cellphones compatible with US 4G LTE band are LeCo, 1+, Honor (some), Huawei (some), Lenovo (some).
