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...

"
WCDMA/GSM"
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.
