I want an XT capable phone but I don't want any that Telecom sell. So, as such, i've been looking around at phones and what they need to work on the XT network but this is where I seem a bit stupid...
XT needs 850MHz and 2100MHz correct? But when i'm looking at phones online, is this the GSM frequencies or the UMTS frequencies? Many support 'quad band' GSM, which has a range of, and including, the aforementioned XT required frequencies. However very few support the UMTS frequencies required.
There are so many incredible phones that don't have the 850MHz frequency in the UMTS range but do have the 2100MHz one. Does this mean it will work sparingly? As in, the main centers alone, and will likely have poor reception in outer areas? Or the other way around?
Thanks in advance for helping me feel like an idiot :P
