I have been on the look out for a new phone and am interested in the Nokia C6 from Clove UK.

I know that that the Nokia C6 has been released as different versions depending on your geographical location and carrier settings but on the Clove site the version they are selling seems to be suitable for XT but clarification would be much appreciated

Following was from the page

Quad band EGSM 850/900/1800/1900
Automatic switching between GSM bands

WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100
WCDMA, maximum speed up to 3.8 Mbps with simultaneous voice & packet data
HSDPA, maximum speed up to 3.6 Mbps with simultaneous voice & packet data

WCDMA 850 is what you're after.
But i dont think there's a model that runs both 850mhz and 900mhz as it implies on that site.

GSM arena states two models:
HSDPA 900 / 1900 / 2100
HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100

So its not a safe bet as to which version they are selling because they've listed everything?

Would you know of anyone who has purchased an XT compatible phone from Clove??

I suggest confirming with them what the frequencies are directly. This is probably the most reliable way of finding out.

WCDMA 850 is not used in Europe at all - only WCDMA 900/2100. The likelihood of this device being WCDMA 850 in a continent of WCDMA 900/2100 is next to nothing.

Actually most Nokias coming out these days are quad/penta band so there is a good chance it will work but a look at the specs would be best..

Acording to the C6-01 is penta band and the C6 does all bands but  there maybe a setting in the fone to switch band groups..

The C6 appears to be a quad band GSM and quad band UMTS device according to several articles Google has served up.

It appears there are two models though - one that does 850 and 900 and another model that only supports 900 but also supports the 1700/2100 AWS band used in North America.

The data sheet on Nokia's website lists this device as having two frequency variants: 850/1900/2100 and 900/1900/2100.
