thinking about buying this phone the Iphome F003.  But tryign to see if it will work in New Zealand.

It says Network Frequency:
       2G Network: GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz        3G Network: -

I think i read that the xt network will go on 2G but not as fast.

But will this phone work in new zealand on telecom or even the other networks

XT is not 2G 0 2G nothing as advised 100s of other time on here

And to me it looks like you are doing a URL drop

Use the search function and you will find what bands the networks work on

This fake won't work on Telecom XT because it doesn't do any 3G and Telecom's network is 100% 3G only. It will work on Vodafone.

But again, it's a fake. And probably quality will be low. If you receive it.

The fakes seem to have a piece of tinfoil and a paperclip as an antenna. I know a couple of people with SciPhone 68 or whatever they are handsets, and they get no signal in places my cruddy old nokia 1100 thats been bashed around will show 2-3 bars and work fine.

The user interface of them is what you would get if you described how an iPhone looked thru a translator to someone with very basic photoshop skills and a collection of screenshots of the iPhone, and they use that bloody aweful font all thru it. Its almost like the people who designed the screens had no concept of non chinese charactersets and the importance that font size, selection, kerning, etc matter.

Expect it to break, expect software problems, expect noone to be there to give software updates in a months time when you realize that it will crash when you do certain things, and that noone has a clue how to reset them back to defaults once you mess it up some how.

If you bought this phone for $20, you'd be ripped off.
