Hi everyone,

I am going overseas and looking to buy a new phone when I am away, I quite like the look of the Nokia X6 but when looking at the specifications I am not sure what to look at.

This website
has the frequencies under 2G and 3G so I am not sure what one I am meant to be looking at?
I know that I won't receive 2100 because I am outside the main cities.

Could someone please tell me if the X6 would work on XT and on the gsmarena website what settings I should be looking at so that if I research another phone I won't have to ask questions?

1. XT as ZERO 2G/GSM coverage
2. XT uses 3G/HSDPA/WCDMA 850 primary 2100 secondary .... you MUST have 850 for consistent coverage.

That particular version only shows 900/1900/2100 so no it will not work but you may be able to find a US version as they usually have 850/2100 for AT&T's network.

Thank you very much.
So I should be looking at the 3G Network and having 850/2100 on the GSM Arena website?
