Clearing up Confusion on Z10 Models and Frequencies
There seems to be a lot of confusion over which Z10 models exist and which frequencies are supported by each. As such, I've gone ahead and made a chart with the actual, detailed frequency information. (click the image to enlarge)
Additional notes to be added to the image:
STL100-2 - Optus (Australia)
STL100-3 / RFK121LW - Mobilicity
STL100-1 - bmobile (Trinidad and Tobago)
STL100-2 - Vodafone (Netherlands)
STL100-2 - AIS (Thailand)
The only thing left is to complete the list of known carriers which support each model. To finish that, I will need a little assistance from you guys. If you have a Z10 running on a carrier not listed, please post here with details of exactly what speeds are supported. For example, please let me know the following:
Carrier Name: ____________
LTE Support: Full [ ] OR Partial [ ] with details:
HSPA Support: Full [ ] OR Partial [ ] with details:
UMTS Support: Full [ ] OR Partial [ ] with details:
GSM Support: Full [ ] OR Partial [ ] with details:
Full support means that all services (data, text, phone calls, BBM, etc.) are supported by the carrier. For anything where the phone only partially works for certain band types, please provide details.

Here are Vodafone UK's bands. Based on this information, they seem to carry the STL100-2.
As per Wikipedia, here are the radio bands for Everything Everywhere (TMO UK and Orange UK.) If Wikipedia is correct, it looks like EE carries the STL100-2. Unfortunately, the websites for EE, TMO UK, and Orange UK do not list their HSPA+ bands, nor their LTE band(s).
Here are O2 UK's bands (click on the Specifications tab.) Based on this information, they too carry the STL100-2.Sent from my jail cell using a corrupt prison warden

Just posted this elsewhere but there are so many threads regarding this I thought I would post here as well.. Let me know if there are any other screen shots or technical details that may help clear this up.
I have a Z10 unlocked running on T-Mobile. Everything works great except no option for wifi calling.. Speeds are amazing I have seen up to 14Mbps but attached is a screen shot of various lower speeds (4-9Mbps) I have gotten recently (14Mbps was in a city a ways from here). You will also see it is running of T-mobile 4G. This is a Canadian model.. unsure of the carrier as it came unlocked but it is a white, STL100-3, RFF91LW model and is absolutely utilizing the 1700 4G band. I am curious if the bands that are listed with the different STL100-3 variants were software locked, and once the phone is unlocked they are removed, but regardless I have tested this in areas where T-mobile has not deployed its 1900 3G network and it still works well on the 1700 3G/4G. If someone more technical has an explanation that would be interesting, but for now know that it works when unlocked.
ALSO, I used to rely on Wifi Calling inside my house (its like a bunker for cell phone coverage) and I was concerned about this as I got NO coverage. But with the Z10 I get at least one bar walking around my house. Just enough. (For comparison, I was on the 9900 and the IPhone 4 before neither of which got any coverage). Hope this helps someone.

- I don't like you in that way
The only problem I've had besides the LTE issue on Telus would be that I can't seem to send picture texts. I can receive them though. That is probably a carrier thing.

Hi, thanks for your response. I actually just got a reply from Telus tech service saying that the STL100-2 should work on there network as their HSPA+ cellular network runs on both 850MHz and 1900MHz frequencies. Like you said, LTE wont work but that shouldn't be a problem for me, as I've been using it with 3G or Orange UK and it is plenty fast.

Would love to see this updated and become more comprehensive regarding carriers that are supported and carriers that may be supported should you visit another country and would like to use your Z10 with a local SIM. Could be the deciding factor in the Model type you purchase.
