Looks like one can change which WCDMA frequencies a Tab is using, so even if one has a Telstra model one could in theory use it on say T-Mobile USA.


  1. In the Phone app, enter
    * # * # 1 9 7 3 2 8 6 4 0 # * # *

  2. Menu-key, "Select", "8" (Phone Control)
  3. Menu-key, "Select", "7" (Network Control)
  4. Menu-key, "Select", "2" (Band Selection)
  5. Select which bands you want
  6. Menu-key, "Back"


I have an Optus SIM on the way, will see how it goes on 900. Or maybe even 900/2100, if I can convince it to use the pair. Can't guarantee it'd work with 1700, though that's on the list. Would probably need a T-Mobile SIM in there to even try.
Telstra just cut the price of the 7" Galaxy Tab again. First it was $408, now it's $299. This is the 850/2100 HSPA device, good for the Telstra NextG network, most of Europe, and some AT&T areas. No network locks, no contracts.

Having bought it at $408 I'm very slightly miffed, but it's not a big deal. At $408 I thought it was a good deal, at $299 it's pretty much a steal. Wouldn't be surprised to see some enterprising types buying these then reselling them to Americans and Europeans on eBay...
