Nokia N97 has two versions 900 / 1900 / 2100 or 850 / 1900 / 2100

but a quad band would be nice

EDIT: I found one!  HTC Fuze http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_touch_pro-2413.php http://www.phonesdirect.co.nz/product-p/htc-fuze-blk.htm

I might go for this phone.

The Fuze is only 850 OR 900 3G + the others - there is no handset available yet that does both 850 and 900 3G.

Are you sure Scott? The HTC Fuze is listed as supporting both on GSM Arena - and apparently the Sony Ericsson Aino will also support both bands (http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_aino-2810.php)




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

The UL + DL frequency bands are reversed for the UMTS900 and UMTS850 standards. It might be possible to support both in the same handset, but they would need separate RF components, increasing the cost and bulk of the phone.

The iPhone 3G and 3G S only supports 850 WCDMA. It does not support 900 WCDMA.

It has been discussed elsewhere on GZ previously that they are not always particularly accurate.

The problem (sometimes) is manufacturers make 2 or 3 variants of the same phone and list all the bands they support across both variants.

The fuze (touch pro) comes in two versions, one will work on telecom's 850+2100, the other will work on vodafones 900+2100.

Fuze = telecom
touch pro = vodafone

Be aware of stated frequencies for GSM and 3G and read closely, you'll find most new phones do all 4 for GSM but only 3 at best for 3G

It was most definitely a typo.

I made the same mistake earlier on in the piece when I asked this same question about a month or two ago.

So no. No phones currently support 850+900 together. (UMTS)
