I've been looking at the Blu Vivo 4.3 and its specifications

I believe the D910i might be the best of the 2 models to import.
Based on what I've checked online I believe it should be compatable with Telecom (3G, parts of the network) and Vodafone and 2degrees.

Can you guys check out the frequencies to confirm or deny what I believe.

I use 2degrees atm but my phone quite often is out of signal around parts of my home (I live towards the back of karori) and even more often when I walk on tracks up to Wrights Hill or through the skyline walkway which are both nearby. Therefore which model and/or networks would you suggest to give me better signal and/or beter value?

Given it's pretty low specs, why not just pick up a Galaxy S2 for pretty cheap?

There appear to be two separate D910 models. The D910i works on the international 3G bands (900/2100, used by Vodafone and 2degrees) and the D910a works on the American 3G bands (850/1900, used by XT).

From the comments on GSMArena it sounds like SIM slot 1 is used for the 3G connection, and SIM slot 2 is only for voice and 2G data. Given that XT is 3G-only and doesn't have 2G fallback, you wouldn't be able to use an XT SIM for calls and a 2degrees/Vodafone SIM for data.

I was looking for a dual sim phone, and this one appears to be not too bad in specs (given my last and current phone was an android 2 budget phone).

I would probably aim for vodafone and 2degrees, I was just thinking telecom XT might work because it says online how they have a 2100 MHz infill in major urban areas which I though could include wellington.
