I am interested in purchasing a Nokia e63 mobile while I am on holiday here in Thailand, and plan to use it on Vodafone NZ (3g) for web surfing.

From looking at the specs on this model at: http://www.nokia.co.nz/find-products/all-phones/nokia-e63/technical-specifications

I'm a little confused as to whether this phone will work on the high speed 3g network offered by Vodafone. The phone spec shows it as supporting WCDMA 900/2100 or 850/1900 or 850/2100, maximum speed 384/384 kbps but I think Vodafone don't offer WCDMA.

Do I need a different model phone which will support HSDPA? I want to connect to vodafone and not sure of this models compatibility.

Hope someone can assist in clarifying this for me. Thanks in advance.

The E63 does not support HSDPA, it only supports standard 3G data which is 384kbps max.

Like many Nokia handets it is also available in 2 variants, one that does 850/2100 WCDMA and the other than does 900/2100 WCDMA. To have nationwide 3G in New Zealand on Vodafone you need the model that supports 900Mhz. Telecom's XT network uses 850Mhz.
