I am considering a new phone suitable for using as a modem to connect my notebook for infrequent uses. I was going to go for either a Motorola V6 MAXX of imate SPJAS both with HSDPA when I saw that Vodafone have just released a Vodafone 1210 with HSCSD. Which will give me the best results and still provde a good phone
Thanks

HSCSD is not used on the VFNZ network only CSD

HSCSD is network (cell level) capacity hungry

HSDPA is years ahead of HSCSD

Does the I-mate SP-JAS actually support HSDPA? mine was fantastic but started to have GSM RF issues, now using a Nokia n95 for the GPS function but I miss the Jas.

HSCSD is ancient... Not even worth worrying about, not supported here and very very battery-hungry

JohnR, When you say

HSCSD is network (cell level) capacity hungry
Should't New Zealand have ample spare capacity since we are not crowded at all!

Hi Guys
Thanks for all your advice. Looks like the Mv6maxx is the phone for me.
