We currently have a Vodafone Red Phone (Huawei cordless phone with sim card in the base) as our business corporate line. We are tied to the plan but the device is terrible.

 

I'm looking at this to use our existing phones but unsure about 2g/3g stuff. It does say "1.Networks support: GSM900/1800MHz" but not sure which network it relates to.

 

Is it appropriate, or if not any ideas of something similar that will work?

 

 

 

Cheers :)

 Assuming you are effectively using the Home Phone Wireless system, then answer to above device is no. The Home Phone Wireless SIM card is locked to specific Vodafone supplied hardware only.

When ours broke, the corporate account manager told us to put the sim in any old mobile to carry on business as usual?

Well the account manager is not correct or you have the incorrect SIM card in the unit

Try the SIM card from the home phone wireless unit in a standard mobile phone, Does the phone display a error message or does it log onto the mobile network?
