skuzzb: cheers,i also found phone at mobicity,http://www.mobicity.co.nz/huawei-ascend-p2.html#.UuNu3rSBo5s
specs there are
Network Band GSM 850, GSM 900, GSM 1800, GSM 1900, 3G 900, 3G 2100, 4G/LTE 1800 Recommended Networks 2Degrees, Vodafone 2G, Vodafone 3G, Telecom 3G 2100, Vodafone/Telecom 4G LTE 1800 really confusing now
This phone is useless on Telecom.
You need WCDMA 850MHz for Telecom. The "Telecom 3G 2100" will work in some places, not all because 2100 is only used for infill and not available everywhere.
The phone may support 4G, but it lacks on 3G. All voice calls are 3G, which means even if the phone could get some coverage in 4G it would not stull not work if the 3G is not there.
I wonder how many people complaining about Telecom coverage are actually using these kind of crippled handsets.
