My wife's currently on 2 degrees using a lumia 735 but was previously on vodafone - I believe the phone worked fine on both, though I can't recall what sim it originally came with.  But should it work ok on telecom\skinny network? Are there multiple versions of the phone for different bands or was there just the one?

Should work fine. Here are the specs:

 

 

 

  • GSM network: 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 1900 MHz
  • GSM max data speed DL: EGPRS 296.0 kbps
  • GSM max data speed UL: EGPRS 236.8 kbps
  • WCDMA network: Band 5 (850 MHz), Band 8 (900 MHz), Band 1 (2100 MHz), Band 2 (1900 MHz)
  • WCDMA max data speed DL: 21.1 Mbps (Cat 14), 42.2 Mbps (Cat 24)
  • WCDMA max data speed UL: 5.76 Mbps (Cat 6)
  • LTE FDD network: Band 13 (700MHz), Band 20 (800MHz), Band 2 (1900 MHz), Band 3 (1800 MHz), Band 7 (2600 MHz), Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz)
  • LTE max data speed DL: 150 Mbps (Cat 4)
  • LTE max data speed UL: 50 Mbps (Cat 4)
  • CDMA network bands: BC0 (850 MHz), BC1 (1900 MHz)
  • CDMA max data speed DL: Rev 0 /A 2.4 Mbps /3.1 Mbps
  • CDMA max data speed UL: Rev 0 /A 153.2 kbps /1.8 Mbps

 

 

Looks like it will do 3G on Spark/Skinny just fine on 850MHz and 2100MHz.

 

Also looks like LTE should work on 1800MHz and 2600MHz. However, the LTE on 700MHz is probably not usable as I think Band 13 is for  the US market. Here in NZ we need Band 28 @ 700MHz.
