Vodaphone is spelt Vodafail... uh Vodafone... but the Vodafail spelling is also accepted in Australia.

Also this phone SKU is not really compatible with Telstra as it doesn't support 3G 850mhz, Telstra's 3G 850mhz network is the only reason to use Telstra over any other carrier in Australia.

The way the Optus Open network has deteriorated in the last 6 months they should change their name to Floptus. The influx of unhappy Vodafone users probably caused those issues... I was lucky to get out of a contract with them due to poor network problems and the terrible customer service. I had been happy with them since 2002 until 6 months ago.

tldr; if it doesn't support 850MHz I must wait for one that does!

Mobicity are great but currently only selling 900-1900-2100 network Lumias till next year.. I tried to order one this year but the infrormation on their web site was incorrect.. ensure you get your order correct..

I want the HTC TITAN as it has more in it, but...... I have to wait dman it !!
Could you (Neowin) do a comparison between the two ??
