i was looking in to buying the Lg Gw525 from Vodafone to put on the telecom network, Does anyone know if this will work?


the specs from the vodafone site say



GSM Band -  QUAD 3G900/2100


but when i searched it on other websites it came up with 


Network:GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900,HSDPA 900 / 2100


please help me as i am not very phone smart!


thanks for your help guys

no

you need 3g 850 for telecom, this is 900 so useful for vodafone if you decide to travel to the whopwhops.

See if the phone is available on telxtra nextG or AT&T in the states, that would mean an 850 model is available. Sourcing it is an exercise in frustration left up to you.

littleangelboy: GSM Band -  QUAD 3G900/2100

OK, a couple of things:


1. GSM Band - QUAD: This means it runs on the four GSM bands listed on the other site (850, 900, 1800 and 1900). GSM bands are irrelevant for XT, as Telecom doesn't run a GSM network.


2. 3G 900/2100: This matches with the HSDPA 900/2100 listed on the other site. As mentioned by richms you need WCDMA (aka UMTS or 3G) at 850 MHz for XT.


Hopefully this helps you to understand it all :)
