Topic # 85452 20-Jun-2011 08:02 Send private message

Hi guys,

I am looking to bring in a phone that has the following specs:

2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 
3G Network HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100 

Will this work on Voda 3G? From what I've read it'll work on XT, but not sure about Voda.

Thanks

Yes it will work on Vodafone 3G but not Vodafone 3G extended

Purple 2G / GSM 900/1800mhz
Red 3G 2100mhz

In other words on Vodafone it will work on 3G in the main centres, not everywhere.

Kamo
Glenorchy
Nelson
Timaru
Omaru

Yes XT is 100% 3G 850mhz with some 2100mhz 3G infill capacity (not coverage)

Those are pretty major towns though. The big downside will be the area between big towns where you'll be stuck with GPRS

Someone needs to make a thing where you tick what options your phone says it supports and it pops out and say "Yes this will work on X network"




Checkout the EPIC5 script I work on, LiCe. Makes console based IRC fun and easy to use, just like the old days!
