I see that a seller is selling Samsung Note 4's on trademe at a reasonable price. These are the T mobile versions, - 

 

 

SM-N910T

 

 

 

 

It looks compatible with our frequencies, any experience of the software etc loaded? Will they work well in NZ?

 

 

 

Regards

GPRS Yes EDGE Yes

 

 

 

The Vodafone NZ mobile network operates on the following frequencies:

 

     

  • 2G - GSM 900MHz.
  • 2G - GSM 1800MHz.
  • 3G - 900MHz (U900) in rural and marine areas (up to 120Kms offshore)
  • 3G - 2100MHz (U2100) in urban areas.
  • 4G - 700MHz (Band 28)
  • 4G - 1800MHz (Band 3)
  • 4G - 2600MHz (Band 7)

 

 

So looks like no 4G





Perpetually undecided.

The biggest thing that model of phone is missing is Band 28 - 4G @ 700MHz - our APT flavour.
