Vertu is by far the main manufacturer of luxury phones. A couple of things you may want to know about their phones -
Concierge and Vertu phones
All Vertu phones have a dedicated Concierge button, which can connect to a team of experts for restaurants or hotels suggestions, bookings, etc.
"Locked/Unlocked" and Vertu phones
Vertu phones are never locked to a single network provider. They can be locked by a security code configured by the user, for example to prompt for a PIN code if a new SIM card is installed in the phone. If you have a VERTU phone which is locked when you install a new SIM card, and do not know the PIN code we suggest that you contact Vertu technical support; they will assist you to have the code reseted.
How can I be sure that the Vertu phone I want to buy is working in my country - i.e. will the phone be able to receive network signal?
P.S. This question would only apply if you intend to purchase a less recent model of Vertu like Signature M or Ascent B (whose antenna had more limited capabilities).
To be sure that the phone is working in your country & with your SIM card you may check:
1. The network frequencies supported by the phone - listed in the Specifications Summary Table
2. The network frequencies supported by your operator & SIM card - listed on the website:
