    Can anyone tell me if the Classic will work in Australia, here are the Network Band and Networks info:

    Network Band GSM 850, GSM 900, GSM 1800, GSM 1900, 3G 850, 3G 900, 3G 1900, 3G 2100, 4G/LTE 800, 4G/LTE 1800, 4G/LTE 2600
    Networks 2G 900/1800, 3G 850 (NextG), 3G 900, 3G 2100, 4G LTE 1800, 3G 1900, 4G LTE 2600

    Will it be compatible with:
    Next G
    Telstra/Optus 4G

    This particular variant (SQC100-1) that you've listed will work on Telstra's and Optus' 3G networks, no problem. But for 4G LTE, it only has one of the two bands that Telstra networks use: 1800 MHz (band 3.) It does not have band 28. That may not be a problem, if band 28's just supplementary (I see that it's the newer of the two networks and probably just coming on.)

    Optus ,it looks like has four LTE networks: band 3, 7, 28, 40. The SQC100-1 has only bands 3 and 7, but between these two LTE networks, there is probably good nationwide coverage.

    I don't know about Next G, but if that 850 MHz is their 3G frequency, then the SQC100-1 will work on their network. If you find their LTE network(s) information, compare it to these bands:

    LTE 800/850/900/1800/1900/2100/2600 UMTS 800/850/900/1900/2100
