I see that a seller is selling Samsung Note 4's on trademe at a reasonable price. These are the T mobile versions, - 








It looks compatible with our frequencies, any experience of the software etc loaded? Will they work well in NZ?

Google Says:


Versions: N910M (Vodafone), N910V (Verizon), N910A (AT&T), N910T (T-Mobile), N910P (Sprint), N910R4 (US Cellular)


Technology GSM / CDMA / HSPA / EVDO / LTE 2G bands CDMA 800 / 1900   GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900


3G bands CDMA2000 1xEV-DO   HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100


4G bands LTE band 2(1900), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 12(700), 17(700)


Speed HSPA, LTE Cat4 150/50 Mbps, EV-DO Rev.A 3.1 Mbps






The Vodafone NZ mobile network operates on the following frequencies:



  • 2G - GSM 900MHz.
  • 2G - GSM 1800MHz.
  • 3G - 900MHz (U900) in rural and marine areas (up to 120Kms offshore)
  • 3G - 2100MHz (U2100) in urban areas.
  • 4G - 700MHz (Band 28)
  • 4G - 1800MHz (Band 3)
  • 4G - 2600MHz (Band 7)



So looks like no 4G

Perpetually undecided.

Linux: 3G U900 is used NZ wide not just rural NZ and 2G 1800Mhz is no longer as its used for 4G





In that case it looks like VF need to update the following page.

Perpetually undecided.

The biggest thing that model of phone is missing is Band 28 - 4G @ 700MHz - our APT flavour.
