About the ZTE U960.
The page is in Chinese, however the specs do clearly state "GSM，TD-SCDMA"
and not UMTS or WCDMA. And I do know this one is sold by China Mobile, and is used on their TD-SCDMA 3G network.
There's two versions of the V970
【中兴U970 】中兴（ZTE）U970 3G手机（黑色）TD-SCDMA/GSM 非定制【行情 报价 价格 评测】
"中兴（ZTE）U970 3G手机（黑色）TD-SCDMA/GSM 非定制"
and this one...
Which will be able to use 3G in Europe no problem. So it would best to double-check what you're actually getting, especially when ordering from Mainland Chinese wholesalers.
They should both be dual-SIM full active. Most modern ones are, except the real cheapo ones that only have one radio.
This issue came up a few months ago. Someone had a Samsung Galaxy Ace they bought from China, couldn't make it work with Three in the United Kingdom. Phone was a GSM/TD-SCDMA phone and Three is a UMTS/WCDMA only carrier.
