DSE lists the Nokia 5030 as a quad band, while everyone else lists it as dual. Anyone know for certain what it is?

It is quad band GSM only, no 3G

The local sites are always better to check for locally bought handsets as the information can change in different regions.

Okay, thanks. I'll put it down as definitely quad band then. I'm just looking for something cheap on prepay for my occasional travels here and in the US.

Hi all, from Dunedin.
Sorry to resurrect this, but I'm a mobile newbie, looking at buying an "oldie" phone secondhand that I can use when I visit USA shortly.

I see Brent says "It is quad band GSM only, no 3G".

Perhaps I just need better understanding of terms - I assume "Quad Band" means 900/1800 and also 850/1900 (i.e. works in NZ *and* works in USA). But all I read strongly suggests that a Nokia 5030, originally purchased in NZ, will NOT work in USA.

Can some kind soul please educate me ?
