If I bought an iPhone 5c in the Philippines, will it work in Australia?

Answered
I'm going to the Philippines in January 2014 . I figured that the iPhones there might be a bit cheaper so I'm planning to buy one there (unlocked) would you guys please tell me if the pre-paid service work in Australia? Thanks

Hi miz_gaz,

 

Your iPhone 5c will work here in Australia if it can connect to the 850MHz frequency band which is what we use for the Telstra Next G Network. Thanks miz_gaz.

Just note the model numbers. As not all models carry the ch4 which is required for 4G
