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
This one...

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.
