List of phones with the Telstra Blue Tick for using outside cities

Live and work in rural Australia? See the list of phones Telstra recommends for rural areas.

[Update: Telstra has announced the first 4G Blue Tick phones. It is "transitioning" voice calls from its 3G network to 4G, and planing to end 3G services in June 2024].

If you have ever shopped for a phone with Telstra then you may have come across talk of a “Blue Tick" phone or noticed the reference on select smartphone boxes.

For example, Blackberry just announced that their new Blackberry Z10 now has the Blue Tick from Telstra.

The Blue Tick means that Telstra recommends the phone for rural coverage. Consider using a Blue Tick phone if you intend on using your phone in rural areas.
As a rule of thumb, all Blue Tick phones are Next G capable but not all Next G phones necessarily qualify for the Blue Tick.
Telstra puts these phones through a  testing process, which you can read about on the web site Gizmodo.
Here is the list of current phones which have the Telstra Blue Tick, according to the Telstra web site: 
  • Apple iPhone 4S
  • Apple iPhone 4
  • Blackberry Z10
  • Blackberry Torch 9800
  • Blackberry Torch 9810
  • HTC OneXL
  • LG Optimus Spirit
  • Motorola DEFY+
