Hey I'm just after some quick clarification regarding service bands.

I'm looking at a phone which is HSDPA 850 / 1900

This in theory should work on XT right? 

I'm just wondering what the difference between the 850 / 1900 vs 850 / 2100.

As in is one better than the other, or does it not really make any difference.

Thanks, sorry if this has been covered before

Best site to check to see if your phone will work on our network is Phone Compatiblity Checker  and remember that Primary our network is WCDMA - 850 MHz with an overlay of 2100 MHz

850/1900 MHz will work but it will miss the 2100MHz infill. Best is to find a 850/2100 MHz handset instead.
