    LTE B1 (2100MHz), B3 (1800MHz), B5 (850MHz) ,B7 (2600MHz), B8 (900MHz), B26 (850MHz), B40 (2300MHz), WCDMA 850/900/2100MHz; GSM 900/1800MHz

    Will this work for anyone in North America? Unfortunately it won't work with my carrier but I was planning on ordering one in if it did.

    Anyone tempted in NA to give it a try??

    No, and even barely in Canada with just Band 7.

    Band 4, 12 are the primary bands for the 3GPP North American networks. Even UMTS 1900 is missing.

    Shame, was hoping someone could get their paws on one and give it a try.

    According to the spec sheet it wont work with LTE. Only if I knew how to import one I can do so and let you guys know. The only reson I like it because of dual sim.

    I am waiting for the 5G come out there... hopefully, it will utilize the network capability. Ericsson Demos 5G in Indonesia | Light Reading. 1st time feel fall behind in NA, but the game is not over yet.

    As this phone is set to be sold in Indonesia, the LTE bands are specific for Indonesian LTE. Currently we are not ready for the LTE 700 as this spectrum is still occupied by local TV networks, therefore the projection will be to expand the LTE using the 900/1800/2100 mHz + TDD 2300 and possibly FDD 2600.

    Could someone help me decipher this? According to specs the Aurora supports the following:

    2G GSM 900
    2G GSM 1800
    3G UMTS 850
    3G UMTS 900
    3G UMTS 2100
    3G LTE 850
    4G LTE 900
    4G LTE 1800
    4G LTE 2600
    4G LTE 850


    My country Jamaica supports: GSM 850,900/1800/1900 MHZ, UMTS 850/1900/2100


    What does that even mean? LOL!

    In the end it all depends on what is supported by your phone and through your carrier. In your case it looks like the Aurora supports:
    Voice and Text in Jamaica on GSM 850, 900, 1800 MHz (2G & 3G, but not on 1900)
    UMTS 3G Data in Jamaica on 850 and 2100 MHz (but not 1900)
    It appears that 4G/LTE data is not supported according to your carrier frequencies, but 4G was introduced by Digicel in Jamacia last year.

    "G" stands for generation. "4G" is essentially the same as LTE.
    GSM means Global System for Mobile communication and is the mobile standard in most of the world with the exception of the CDMA carriers, mainly in the US.
    Both GSM and CDMA will eventually be replaced by LTE.

    You didn't say which carrier you use in Jamaica and what type of plan you have (Just Talk & Text or also data?)

    I expect your situation in Jamaica is different than here in North America where the focus is mainly on the LTE data bands which can also support voice and text.

    My service provider is Lime. I use tal, text and data. It says 4G but i'm not sure i actually get 4G

    I suspect you are right about the 4G. It may be available it certain areas, but otherwise it will be 3G.
    According to the Wikipedia GSM Bands by Country page, Lime uses GSM on 900. 1800 and 1900 MHz (1900 is not supported by the Aurora).
    According to CellMapper.net Lime uses 3G UMTS for data (no mention of 4G) which you said runs on 850/1900/2100 MHz (again the Aurora doesn't support 1900).
    So it looks like the only significant issue is that the Aurora doesn't support 1900 MHz. You should check with Lime to see if not being able to use 1900 MHz in your local area will be an issue for you.

    I will. You really helped. Thanks.
