Hi, I was thinking of getting a G5 on trademe, then I saw this one:



http://www.ebay.com/itm/BRAND-NEW-LG-G5-H830T-32GB-T-Mobile-GSM-Unlocked-4G-LTE-Smartphone-/352049253484?var=&hash=item51f7c54c6c:m:mJhf3WgGNAX9AXnngKnIJOw



So I was wondering if it would work okay here, I've had a look at gsmarena for band support but can't find the exact model.



Thanks

If you only want GSM coverage on VF/2d or 3G only coverage on Spark it'll work fine. You won't get LTE nor very good 3G on VF or 2d

 

Buying a US model handset from any manufacturer is nearly always a very poor idea due to band support.
