GSM Unlocked Phone in Bangkok - Nexus 6?

Jump to last reply

I have an unlocked Nexus 6 smartphone and I'm wondering if it will work in Thailand if I buy a prepaid SIM card. I was always under the impression that it would but now I'm second guessing it because I've heard that Thailand operates on some sort of 2100/MHz frequency. Below are the specs from the Nexus 6 that I have.

Thanks!

    US is out of step with most of the rest of the world on this - howeer, Thaailand has both 2G and 3G services. (and in some places 4G).
    I'm not very techical on this but I feel that most phones these days are manufactured to cope with just about any network.
    AIS is certainly 2100Mhz but I'm not sure about True and Dtac. - Dtac claim "operating on 3 smart networks, running simultaneously at 1800 MHZ, 850 MHZ and 2100 MHZ frequencies" giving "widest coverage" -

    if you can unjumble this table it might help too......
