compatible phones

Post by daveb » Thu Sep 13, 2012 9:04 pm

I'm on the M8 plan and looking at buying a new mobile phone. Can I get any old outright/unlocked handset and put my SIM in it? I'm probably looking at an HTC or Samsung android model.

Note that the page http://exetel.com.au/residential-mobile-cap-plans.php has a link at the bottom "View Mobile Handsets" but the link goes to a page of modems. You might want to fix that.

some of the handsets come in different carrier versions, look for models offered on the Optus network is an easy way to determine which is which, this site is a good reference for many models that you'll find in the market http://www.mobicity.com.au/ and what frequencies are supported

Thanks for the info.

I may also have to aquire a nano sim for the new phone - as far as I know I only have a standard one. How would I do this?
