8700G frequencies

I have a great offer to purchase a Blackberry 8700G that I want to use in the UK on the three.co.uk network which requires the [3G] UMTS 2100MHz frequency. Some sites say the Blackberry 8700G has this frequency, others say it does not. Can anyone give me a definitive answer please. Thank you.

Re: 8700G frequencies

Hey gabbai,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Sorry to say but the 8700g does not support UMTS 2100MHz frequency.  It however does support GSM 850, GSM 900, DCS 1800, PCS 1900 MHz.


I have attached a PDF explaining this information for you as well.
