Here is a link to the original auction, (I purchased the phone of the person who won this auction) http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=384605821
The phone supports:
GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 and
3G 900 / 2100
The seller says this phone will ONLY work on 2 Degrees, and NOT on Vodafone or Telecom.
So here is where I’m confused.
I understand the phone cannot work with Telecom XT because the XT network uses 3G 850/2100 frequency.
But what possible reason could there be as to why this phone could not work on Vodafone?
Because don’t 2 Degrees and Vodafone both use a GSM 900/1800 and 3G 900/2100 frequency?
So if the phone can use 2 Degrees, why could this phone not work on Vodafone?
I doubt the phone is locked to 2 Degrees as to my knowledge 2 Degrees have never sold the Motorola Milestone.
So does anybody have a clue as to why this phone may not work on Vodafone?
Many thanks for reading this, I hope some of you may have a clue.
