Hi

I am looking into buying a phone from Oz and am making sure they work here.

The phone is a Nokia 6700 slide.

I want to make sure the frequencies or whatever as they are set for in OZ are the same as here?

I have no idea on these things.

Thanks

Yeh they would work over here, but I think most Australian Telco's lock phones to their network so you should make sure its unlocked before you get it because some can be a hassle to get unlocked.

The one I am looking at getting is a pre paid on the three network.

I dont know if it is locked being pre paid or not? I assume it is?

Virtually every phone sold in AU at a retail outlet associated with a carrier is SIM locked to a network.

I am just reading about a thing called "i-SmartSim"

apparently you put it under the sim and it unlocks the phone?

You'd be better off to pay the unlocking fee.

Three prepaid phones are definitely locked. Pay the fee to unlock it, it's the least hassle option.
