Moving to Australia

Just Moved In



I'm moving to Australia in a couple months and trying to find out if Telus's iPhone 5 would work there or if any Telus iPhone would work there?

Your phone is not supported in Australia. It doesn't support the right cellular bands there. Click on iPhone 5 and view the chart.

You could sell your old one, although a 5 doesn't have much value anymore.

@WestCoasterBC   That is just for LTE. The 3G bands should still be supported in Australia.



Carrier:               3G Frequency:
Telstra                850MHz 2100MHz
Optus & Virgin Mobile  900MHz 2100MHz
Vodafone               850MHz 900MHz 2100MHz

iPhone 5 model A1428*

UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz); 
GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz); 
LTE (Bands 4 and 17)


@sarahgauer - be sure to have your iPhone unlocked before you move, if it isn't already.

I'm aware 3G bands work. Why bottle neck ones self to never use LTE.. Especially when a 5 only fetches about $120
