Spark are a bit slow on Twitter today and I need answers asap... :) GZ to the rescue!

Will any of the following devices work on the Spark network ?

Samsung S5690 Galaxy
C597 T-Stick (for data - is Telecom but old)
Samsung S5570 Mini

Think theyve all been sourced from V/fone over the years......  but have a staff member going out on a boat for a project and he needs a Spark phone to at least try for coverage. 

TIA

The Samsung phones look to be a negative, they don't appear cover the right frequencies for Spark. The C597, if it's a Sierra Wireless C597, I think is a CDMA stick?




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Unfortunately the IMEI checker is known to give false positives, so check with a SIM first.

Actually, why not just chuck a SIM in and see what happens anyway?

The 597 T-Stick is most definitely CDMA and won't work in NZ anymore.
