I would very much like to know how the ZTE U960, or alternatively the ZTE V970 behave in practice.
Has anyone actually used either of them handling two calls simultaneously?
One other thing I like to know is, that since most of these phones are intended for the Chinese and far eastern markets, do the European branches/dealers of these makers give any kind of support, or even guarantee these models?
It all depends on the individual makes, how they handle international warranties, and if the European repair offices and agents even have information and spare-parts for phones that were originally meant for sale in China and SE Asia.
Samsung and HTC possibly, but you'd have to check. I don't know if ZTE does phones in Europe. I'm pretty sure Coolpad is China and Far East only, no European presence at all.
There is an issue with the ZTE U960 and V970 though. These are specifically meant for use on China Mobile's TD-SCDMA 3G network, which is unique to China. They're incompatible with 3G in Europe, they'll work but it will be GSM/EDGE only.
