How many of you must have 850 MHz support, and would be satisfied with an 850/1800/1900MHz variant, and how many of you must have full quad-band?

Note that by asking this question we do not promise to provide these options.

Please put your answers below:

Must have an 850/1800/1900MHz variant

  • -- User:Mwester 06:46, 6 November 2007 (CST) - This thing is nothing but an extremely expensive PDA without 850 support. It should do what it was claimed it could do when it was sold (quad-band), but I can live with taking a real phone with me when travelling internationally.
  • -- ShakataGaNai 03:34, 6 November 2007 (CET)
  • -- Aking 21:55 EST, 2007-11-05 - Live/work in an 850 only zone
  • -- Mattdawg 19:57 MST, 6 November 2007
  • -- Wally Ritchie 10:02 EST, 6 November 2007 - GTA02 MUST support largest US GSM carrier.
  • -- Digger 04:15, 6 November 2007 (CET) - But for the money would prefer quad-band
  • -- wisp 04:29, 6 November 2007 (CET) - But for the money would greatly prefer quad-band
  • -- WJCarpenter 19:45, 6 November 2007 (PST)
  • -- Angus 20:59, 5 November 2007 (MST) - Required for Rogers in Canada
  • -- Montgoss 22:34 CST, 5 November 2007 - Frequently in areas that use 850 band.
  • -- Xaid 21:12, November 5th, 2007 (MST) - Rogers Wireless in Edmonton uses both 850/1900 bands.
  • -- Mmontour 06:45, 6 November 2007 (CET) - So far I've been able to use my phone with 1900 only (Fido in Vancouver, BC) but I do sometimes travel to 850-only areas.
  • -- Romulus 07:31, November 6th, 2007 (PST) - I'm with Rogers and will need 850 when on the road.
  • -- Mary 11:24, November 6th, 2007 (EST)
  • -- Algo 13:17, November 6th, 2007 (EST) - I'm with Rogers Canada too and i need the 850 band to get a full coverage. It's a no go no show until the phone can support it.

Is OK with the current 900/1800/1900MHz variant

  • -- BlueStar88 11:50, 6 November 2007 (CET) - 900 (D1-, D2- and O2-Network) and 1800 (E- and O2-Network) are essential in Germany
  • -- (Most of Europe? From my quick bit of research, it seems 850Mhz is only needed for the US, Canada, Anguilla, Ecuador, Montserrat, Panama, St. Kitts and Nevis, Turks and Caicos Islands )
  • -- C.M 06:44 CST, 6 November 2007 - 850 would be nice, but I don't need it.
  • -- Avanc 08:52 CET, 6 November 2007 - 850 would be nice, but I don't want to miss 900
  • -- PT 08:27 GMT, 6 November 2007 - 850 would be nice but the other three are more important for me
  • -- s.decken 10:49 GMT, 6 November 2007 - 850 would be nice but not required
  • -- _alcik_ 11:55 GMT, 6 November 2007 - I really need the 900.
  • -- Mic 12:15 CET, 6 November 2007 - in Europe is 900 essential
  • -- Mockenh 12:45 CET, 6 November 2007 - need 900 (Germany)
  • -- Psmears 14:55, 6 November 2007 (CET) 900/1800 covers most of the world; 1900 covers enough of USA/Canada to be useful for short trips.
  • -- Placid 18:52, 6 November 2007 (CET) - UK, T-Mobile, OK with tri-band.
  • -- Vegar 16:46, 6 November 2007 (CET) - 850 would be nice, but the other three are much more important
  • -- einalex 17:04 CET, 6 November 2007 - in Germany/Europe GSM 900 is a must-have. For me, 850 is optional.
  • -- PatrickBeck 17:45, 6 November 2007 (CET) I live in germany, so is 850 optional for me. But quadband would be nice.
  • -- User:AVee Same as above, having a hardware/software switch for 850/900 would help as well.
  • -- Dread I'm from Germany too, for me, 850 is optional.
  • -- Haakeyar 19:42, 6 November 2007 (CET) I live in Norway.

Must have full quad-band support (note that this is not for GTA01 or GTA02)

  • -- Elektrolott 18:45 (PST), 2007-11-05
  • -- ClashTheBunny 04:03, 6 November 2007 (CET) - Right now I live on the North Shore of Boston and most places are 850
  • -- Sagacis 04:16, 6 November 2007 (CET) - The phone is a brick to me without 850. International travel means I need all four bands.
  • -- Davemaster 21:47, 5 November 2007 (ET) - International travelers, Me and my group (company) deals all over. We need all four bands.
  • -- Rakshat 05:40, 6 November 2007 (CET) - For travel in the US, otherwise I am ok with the 900/1800/1900Mhz variant
  • --NeilenMarais 15:37, 6 November 2007 (CET) - For travel to US also
  • -- Jaebird 09:00, 6 November 2007 (CST) - The phone should be refundable to me without 850 (It was sold as a quad band phone, it is NOT). International travel means I need all four bands.
