I'm ever hopeful that MS will implement SMSsync on their devices so I can discard the Samsung. Ironic that Samsung support the exchange protocol and Microsoft does not.

Facebook app has given up the ghost this morning, opens and runs for a few seconds then shuts down. Tried controlled restart and forced restart but still dead.

Do all 1020 variants have the same frequencies?

My wife who currently has a Telecom (Spark) 920 has decided she'd like a 1020 for the camera. Spark don't have any, at least according to their website.  Mobi city show them in stock.  So far as I can tell the Mobi City ones have both Spark 3G frequencies and 1800 LTE.

http://www.mobicity.co.nz/nokia-lumia-1020-smartphone.html#.VFXhefmUcYs 

Even though Spark are also rolling out 700 LTE I believe that I'm correct in saying that the 1020 was released before any phones had the 700 LTE frequency.

Are the Mobi City ones likley to be the same as Telecom (Spark) was selling?

Thanks

Mine is an off-carrier Australian handset and has the following

LTE FDD network: Band 17 (700MHz), Band 2 (1900 MHz), Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz), Band 5 (850MHz).

The detailed cellular information no longer displays on the NZ site but does for AU, following are the URLs for each.

Edit : if the parallel imported handset is European, it's likely have the same bands as Australia, as Australia aligned itself with Europe in the GSM days. Vodafone NZ is also European aligned, while Telecom aligned itself with the US (and South Korea).

Thanks Brent.  Looks like she should be right if she ends up with a Mobi City one.

Unfortunately those 1020 specs on the AU site are wrong, thanks for highlighting it, we will have that fixed ASAP.


Only the US variant supported that frequency band 17 (700MHz) isn't supported by NZ networks.
