Goophone i9

Picked one of these up and it is a lovely phone if you can't afford the Samsung Note II. The only problem is that it  doesn't work well with 3G  on an O2 network in the UK. In fact to even make and receive calls reliably I have had to put sim into the second sim card slot. Thus relegating the phone to 2G  with gprs / edge   data speed which is SLOW!
Hoping for a firmware update that will fix 3G radio to work on UK bands

Hmmm seems I have been caught out by the spec.  the 3G bit of the goophone  works on 2100/850  and of course O2 is 2100/900 . Told to try Vodaphone.
