Using Nexus One on China Unicom 3G network


I had my mother order a Nexus One for me and as she is 75 years old and screwed it up. She ordered: GSM 3G 850/1900/2100 MHz

I am in China and want to use it on the China Unicom 3G network.

I read that China Unicom uses: WCDMA is the 3G technology used in China by China Unicom. The frequency is 2100 MHz band

Would someone kindly tell me if my phone will work on the China Unicom 3G system? Thanks very much.

That's the so called AT&T version you have there, seems to me that both the phone and the network use 2100mhz so you should get 3G.

You should look more into what freqs the provider uses for 3G, if it is solely 2100, then you're OK.

If like my carrier it uses 2100/900 then you may find yourself struggling.
