Default Vodafone Storm On Telstra?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys,

The 9500 on Vodafone is a 3G phone. I was wondering if I would get 3G on the telstra network with the same phone? I heard they are at a different frequency to the Vodafone network, but really have no idea? Would EDGE still work?

Thank you guys and girls.

Telstra uses 850MHz in Australia and the Storm requires 2100MHz so you will only have EDGE.

Edge is right - not too bad, but it was one of the reasons I switched from Telstra to Vodafone!
