Can someone tell me please if Optus Australia uses the same frequency as Vodafone or is equivalent to Telecom?

Vodafone and 2degrees, not Telecom. But a handset from Optus may be locked if you're thinking of bringing one here.

If you mean, do they use 850 MHz or 900 MHz GSM and UMTS frequency bands, they use 900 Mhz.

Thanks

Was looking at bringing in an Optus  MyPad ZTE V9 from Dick Smith there. I'm guessing it will be locked?

Virtually every device purchased from a carrier is locked in Aussie.
