Something seems odd the S2 from Samsung supports WCDMA

That list is GSM bands.

 NOTE: Vodafone and 2 Degrees only, this model does not operate on WCDMA Band


To me it sounds like the person loading the ad/specs failed to mention WCDMA 850, as clearly these handsets do support WCDMA, just not the Telecom 850 MHz band.

WCDMA = UMTS 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W-CDMA_(UMTS)

Not that it matters, they'll still sell out of stock shortly.

freitasm: That list is GSM bands.

"Cellular:Networks:          GSM850, GSM900, GSM1800, GSM1900, UMTS850 (B5), UMTS900 (B8), UMTS1900 (B2), UMTS2100 (B1)"

UMTS = WCDMA, i.e. not GSM.

Yes, I know UMTS = WCDMA folks. I read the GSM bands and UMTS bands and obviously missed the B5 there.

Yeah, the "UMTS = WCDMA" was more for the benefit of others rather than you :)
