skuzzb: cheers,i also found phone at mobicity,http://www.mobicity.co.nz/huawei-ascend-p2.html#.UuNu3rSBo5s

specs there are
Network Band GSM 850, GSM 900, GSM 1800, GSM 1900, 3G 900, 3G 2100, 4G/LTE 1800 Recommended Networks 2Degrees, Vodafone 2G, Vodafone 3G, Telecom 3G 2100, Vodafone/Telecom 4G LTE 1800 really confusing now


This phone is useless on Telecom.

You need WCDMA 850MHz for Telecom. The "Telecom 3G 2100" will work in some places, not all because 2100 is only used for infill and not available everywhere.

The phone may support 4G, but it lacks on 3G. All voice calls are 3G, which means even if the phone could get some coverage in 4G it would not stull not work if the 3G is not there.

I wonder how many people complaining about Telecom coverage are actually using these kind of crippled handsets.

johnr: Good point Steve that handset would not suit TelecomNZ, VodafoneNZ is 3G 900Mhz / 2100Mhz 3G and 4G 1800 / 2600Mhz

2600? So any of these live? Or just there for future capacity?





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

skuzzb: while looking for a phone to buy from China i came across a Huawei Ascend P2 4G Lte,the specs are as follows but do i need to know what 4 G frequencies are for this phone?? 2G:GSM 850/900/1800/1900 3G:WCDMA 900/2100MHz LTE(Cat 4) download speed up to 150Mbps



The Huawei Ascend P2 comes in various hardware variants, so it really depends on which model you buy whether it will be well suited to the Telecom network or not. Telecom retails the correct version with our 3G (850Mhz, and 2100Mhz) and 4G (currently 1800Mhz) frequencies supported here.

I believe it's the Ascend P2-6070 variant that you will need.
