Will current GSM handsets such as the Nokia N95 operate on the NGN? I have been googling for the answer to tis for a week now. Thanks in advance

So any cell that operates in 850mhz (are there other frequencies for the NGN?) will be sweet?

Any handset that does 850 + 2100 UMTS is OK.

Just be aware that 850 GSM is NOT 850 UMTS. Virtually all handsets support 850 GSM but Telecom are no longer building a GSM network.

I would strongly recommend checking out manufacturer websites for tech specs of devices.

You are looking for WCDMA2100 + WCDMA850.

And, as alluded to above, there can be regional differences between what a particular handset supports (ie. a Nokia N95 sold in NZ may have different band support than one sold in the US)...
