Why doesn't vf list what 3G bands their phones work on???

I am looking for something that will work on UMTS 900 as their 2100hz is ony in the main centres.

When looking at the phones on the vf site they seem to only list tri band or quad band or 3G capable etc without actually listing the frequency.

Even looking at the data sheets doesn't help.

OK where am I supposed to be looking here? I can't see any picture of NZ with any red circle, only the vodafone logo with a couple of swirls around the outside?

On their website, if a phone has the 3G 900Mhz band, they advertise "3G Extended Coverage." on. the specs page.
Other way is if you have the original box it should have the specific GSM/UMTS bands it has. eg the SE W995a I got states UMTS bands 1/2/5 (IIRC) which is 2100/1900/850. I think UMTS band 4 is 900 but unsure :)
