Seems noone (Vodafone sales or their retaillers) can agree on this and it's a bit suss the Vodafone sales said I had to spend most of $500.

 

Hoping to find someone from Vodafone who knows the answer-

 

Does the J2 Pro support 700Mhz?

Thanks.

 

So what is the cheapest handset I can get with this?

 

How would this compare with a J2 forced into 3G?

 

Application is a rural event. I need to buy a few handsets.

The only difference is memory as I understand between the J2 and the J2 pro

I was looking at the J2 Pro because it's a 2018 model which comes with Android 7 or 7.1

 

Older models come with Android 6 and there is no mention if they are upgradeable.

 

Is there any benefit with LTE in rural areas?

Is there any lower priced handsets which feature this?

 

(Any carrier as long as it's unlocked or can be unlocked)

Thanks for that. I have been looking at Samsung but this model may be better suited to this requirement.

 

Feedback about the Huawei Y6 would be appreciated.
