Hi, from Australia,
I have bought UK based honor phones before, (5C not global rom - so some carriers didnt work) but would like to get an Honor View 20 global version , and know the actual model, so I can check the frequencies on frequency checker website before I buy.
I have tried Amazon India, and also tried Hi Honor, and even emailed Huawei in Australia ( long time Huawei user prior to using Honor 5C) so far no luck .
I did find a PCI-L29 for.. $1219 ,but thats a lot more expensive than the Malaysian / Indian prices.
At this level of price purchase, i am hoping to get the model that works internationally, as I found the PCT -L29 has the right bands for Australia, but very hard to buy.
So I thought this forum would be a great place to make my first post, and see what I can did up for how to buy one. Perhaps someone can share a link , if they have bought a global one.. plenty of ebay ones etc, but when you follow the link... not global .

This isnt just for me, others on some Australian tech forums also would love to know.

Thanks!

I'm in New Zealand using Pct_al10 (bought from India) I can confirm 4g and 3g work full signal on both my sims. I use Spark and Vodafone. You could lookup the bands they use and compare to the ones you need.

Hi Flamery, checked on frequency checker and not suitable (PCT-AL10 ) 5 bands missing for Australia - just in 4g) .
all those bands are available in the global rom.
Glad its working ok for you in NZ.
Maybe somebody else has a source of where I can get the PCT - L29 , or the international version, for less than $1219 AUD

Hi again , found two in Singapore , price is ok, PCT - L29, on their spec B28 (700 APT ) band is missing, but I have seen others in the uk , which specify 15 x 4g / lte bands (international Rom)

So you have the international rom on yours ? if not , can I get the International rom put on? (ps,. edit one shop is Mobyshop, other is Red White Mobile

Thanks

I got mine from the below link. Its a local online shopping portal. Usually discount coupons are given near weekends or every few weeks. Coupons will be something like $100 off minimum $800 purchase. Which will offset the price from $829 to $729 for the 8gb model. Its local set, so warranty is only for Singapore, n region is Asia, so asia rom. I'm not sure if they do overseas shipping, u can ask them through the portal.

I obtained mine (PCT-L29) from Technolec, from eBay. They are an authorized reseller and have been great to work with.

Just check Settings-> about phone-> model name:
- РСТ-L29 Global ROM
- РСТ-AL10 Chinese ROM.

Hope that helps
