Hello, Can someone please post a list of all the Current mobile network bands for Spark (and 2 Degrees if possible). I am looking at importing a US version of the HTC m9 plus, and would like to know if it would be compatible with Spark or 2 Degrees networks, and if i would run into any other issues, suck as SIM or google play problems ect...

Here is a link to the HTC M9 Plus i am looking at:

Any help would be appreciated, and i'm new around here. Thanks!
(Im not sure this is in the right fourm?)

[Mod Edit |Stu| Moved to 'Mobile Handsets' as the requested information is for compatibility with different providers.]

Check out the comment section of Amazon - it appears to be the Chinese version since it is linked against the Chinese Play Store so is a high likelihood that there are other gotchas. Personally I'd hold out until the HTC M9 Plus for Europe appears and then see what happens there.

Laptop: MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)
Desktop: iMac (27-inch, 2017)
Smartphone: iPhone XS Max 256GB 'Space Grey'
Additional devices: Unifi Security Gateway, Unifi Switch, Unifi AP AC HD, Unifi Cloud Key, Apple Watch 4 44mm
Services: YouTube Premium, Wordpress, Skinny Mobile and Broadband

It appears to have the correct frequencies for NZ. The ones reqd are UMTS 850/900/2100 LTE FDD BANDS 3 28

Should work on all carriers in NZ

You can always sideload apps if there is no playstore.

GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz, UMTS: 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 MHz; TD-SCDMA: 1900 / 2000 MHz, LTE: FDD Bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 28; TDD Bands 38, 39, 40, 41.
