    So gsm is quad band but what about umts? Planning on purchasing in UK whilst visiting but I live in Australia. Telstra here use 850mhz for their 3G service.

    My guess is 900/1900/2100.

    If you need 850 your best bet is the US version.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    Yes. I 've just bought the US version which runs fine on NextG 850.

    You won't be able to use the UK version on NextG I believe.

    gsmnation.com have a handy Network compatability festure for their US sourced phones which you may find useful once you have located the model you want.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers

    thirst - was this the pre or the veer?

    I'm going to pick up a veer for the wife, so no dramas there.

    I ideally would like a pre3 - just for the size, but if it's not 850 compatible then i'll get a veer and wait for an official australia release.

    HP released the Pre3 as a world phone but they don't have any of the frequencies or even say that it is a world phone at their HP Webos Pre3 website. Were can you find what frequencies the Pre3 has?

    I also just noticed that they got rid of the photoshop messup with the volume rocker being on the right side.

    based on the FCC filings (and a bit of searching on precentral)

    B94HHF30CN: Quad-band GSM 850/900/1800/1900, Tri-band UMTS 850/1900/2100
    B94HHF30CE: Quad-band GSM 850/900/1800/1900, Tri-band UMTS 900/1900/2100

    Looks like there are two models. Why cant they just make the UMTS bit quad band like the iphone

    Cost, transceiver design, list goes on. Do you want Antennagate?

    Heck, even the iPhone is outdated in that sense if we go on. The Nokia N8 is pentaband, 850/900/1900/AWS/2100. Pretty much every fracking network out there, even T-Mobile USA and WIND.

    Well in that case it shouldn't matter were you buy it (unless its locked to the carrier) because it has 850.

    It'll work but in 2G if your network is 850. For 3G you need the proper UMTS 850, which is only on the US HSPA version.

    And GFN, to correct you on that one, CDMA actually runs on 800, not 850.

    booo

    I think a couple of veers with a touchpad will do nicely then.

    so, in the benelux countries, says 3g on 2100 and 2g on 900,1900 and 3g covers only major cities ...so I will live with 2g mosty which is OK since I will mostly look for wifi hotspots or at home ...my former fone wiMO6.1 had same bands and worked pretty well there ...or should I look for a used EU pre3 with 900 in place of 850 ...worthwhile or not??
