handset compatibility

im trying to buy an LG phone that's not available in AU

 

They say its compatible with GSM networks and not CDMA networks. 

 

Examples they use are all American. E.g works with Tmobile and AT&T.

 

Will it work on Telstra in Oz ?

 

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: handset compatibility

Telstra doesn't use CDMA or GSM but the phone should work on the Telstra 3G and 4G network for data as it supports the frequencies used by Telstra towers for 3G and 4G. You should also be able to make and receive calls in areas were 3G is available. In 4G only areas you need a phone compatible with the type of VOLTE used Telstra. It is unlikely that voice calls will work in 4G only areas.
