  1. This is the link they gave for more info in the letter I got from them: https://help.telstra.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/19026.

  2. Is that because they’re replacing with 4G?

  3. Not impressed! Bought an unlocked Galaxy Ace in Feb. Now they have a sign on the shelf for it saying “not recommended for Telstra after 31/8/12”! Luckily it has 850MHZ band as well! However, the shop could not tell me that, I could find nothing on Telstra Websites, still waiting for answer from Samsung. But I did get hold of someone on Telstra’s Twitter feed who was able to explain it to me!
    I think there will be a lot of very pissed off phone users in September!

  4. This is fantastic news. Finally I won’t be stuck with my phone sometimes dropping Telstra mobile (850) and locking onto 3telstra (2100). There’s never been a fix to this as the 850 ALWAYS outperforms the 2100 by ALOT. Basically 2100 is useless for streaming or tethering.

    Out with the old and in with the new
