Blackberry Torch 9800 Variations?

I am wondering if there are different hardware variations of the Torch 9800. I have a 9800 supplied by Optus in Australia which has a 900/2100 UMTS network, and it will only connect to Telstra on EDGE, not Telstra's 850 UMTS network.

I havent been able to find out if there are two hardware versions of the phone or not, any help would be appreciated.

Re: Blackberry Torch 9800 Variations?

I haven't had a clear answer yet, but on the specifications site here http://au.blackberry.com/devices/blackberrytorch/torch_specifications.jsp it has two listings for the triband UMTS.

  • Tri-band 3G UMTS networks: 2100/1900/850/800 MHz
  • Tri-band 3G UMTS networks: 2100/1900/900 MHz

I think this means that there is two different hardware versions, but if anyone else could confirm it would be appreciated.
