Will my new phone work with the 3 network.

The 2100 MHz part is (I believe) the only bit that's important, as 900 MHz is most likely for compatibility with N America - in the Uk Voda and O2 use 900, from memory, but for voice not internet.

Out of interest, why do you hate the Blade and Europa ?

I have both phones... and am just about to take a Europa (in a protective rubber cover) off to the gym so I can listen to some music while I'm there...

Just put the 3 sim card in and see what happens. Won't do any harm.

They said it may or it may not.!!!
The phone is a chinese clone (!) So no real experience to call on.
The supplier has sent this as the network specs:

3G Network WCDMA:2100/850 (HSDPA)

My ZTE Blade and my samsung europa (both hated by me) are 900/2100 HSDPA spec and work fine with my 3 sim card. Dare I risk it?

I have 6 months left on my contract so would prefer not to have to get a different sim or send the phone back.
