An acquaintance asked whether he might buy the unlocked smartphone of his preference for use on the Silver Star Communications network (in Wyoming). He asked them and they said the phone probably would work but there could be problems with SMS or MMS. I checked the specs on one of the phones they offer, and it is CDMA. The company offers both iPhones and Android phones, if that matters.

I've searched the entire Howard Forums and found no mention of Silver Star, so I figure there's not a lot of institutional knowledge here on them, if any. So based on your broader understanding of the industry, does this sound like a general CYA disclaimer? Is there anything else he might ask them to clarify? Or is this likely to be a crap shoot?
