Hey guys, im looking at importing one of these phones. However Due to the confusing nature of some of the info I have read, I am not absolutely certain it will work in New Zealand. I was hoping someone here could help me out and set me on the right path.

Cheers

Here is the link again, as the forum cut it in half

If I'm reading the specs correctly, it only supports 2100mHZ 3G (which I find a bit odd so it could be a typo), which basically means, you might get SOME XT coverage in places like Auckland City where they use 850/2100 3G in parallel, and as far as Vodafone/2D goes only in major Urban areas where they have the 2100 3G.

Looks like it'd work with Vodafone/2D GSM networks though.

It'll work here but only on 2degree's vodafone and since it only does 2100mhz 3G, you'll only get 3G in the cities where VF/2D's have 2100 towers.

according to the specs, it only supports 2100 for 3G.

you will get GSM most places and 3G only in main centres on Voda and 2Degrees, but nothing on XT.

(techincally XT does have some 2100, but only for infill, not proper coverage you can rely on)

Please folks, do not suggest a 2100 MHz for use on Telecom. The customer will have poor experience and blame on Telecom XT, when in fact the network is a 850 MHz. The 2100 MHz is a bonus and it's not be relied upon.

In short: this will work with Vodafone/2degrees. You'll have 3G access only in the main centres.
