Default Which are the 9500 UMTS/HSPA networks??

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone!
I need help finding out which frequencies the 9500 Vodafone's Version has.
I've read on the web that it's has tri-band UMTS/HSPA.

Could anyone confirm that info?
thanks!

Yes, I've only read about a single band 2100 MHz UMTS/HSPA on the Vodafone 9500:

Is there anyway to find out at the phone? To read it's frequencies?
Because take a look at this web site, from Vodafone's Premier Partner
airtimemanager.co.uk/phones/BlackBerry/9500.aspx

It says "HSDPA : UMTS 850/1900/2100"

It is wrong. There will be a future device that supports more than 2100MHz. I suggest you call them and point out the error.

Agreed, airtimemanager's website is wrong. RIM's site, Vodofone's site, and various other carriers and press releases line up with the specs from above:

UMTS/HSPA: 2100 MHz
Europe/Asia Pacific: 1800MHz GSM/GPRS networks
Europe/Asia Pacific: 900MHz GSM/GPRS networks
North America: 850 MHz GSM®/GPRS networks
North America: 1900MHz GSM/GPRS networks

From the user interface in the OS, there is not a way to list the transmitter frequencies.

Just as an FYI this mistake has been mentioned before and even RIM prior to release of the Storm provided the wrong specs that included what you see at AirTime.

You will need to wait for a 9520 if you want those specs.
