Check again. They are 900Mhz compatible.


UK
Bandwidths GSM 850/900/1800/1900
http://shop.vodafone.co.uk/shop/mobi...3gs-16gb-black

Does that mean anything to anyone ?

The new iPhone 4 is 850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz in Australia
That may explain your confusion?? It states in your link they are in fact 900 compatible.

But in the small print at the bottom it says this:

All 3G 900Mhz devices available from Vodafone are 2100Mhz compatible. However, not all 2100Mhz devices are 900Mhz compatible. Apple iPhone devices are 2100Mhz compatible but are not 900Mhz compatible.

Maybe that refers to the UMTS/HSDPA ?

But I know nothing about these phones. The ones that are wired in are much easier to understand

Ah, yes that refers to UMTS/HSDPA, or 3G. In that case, the iPhone would drop back to the GSM network. Most manufacturers will do 2 versions of their handsets, like Sony Ericsson who have a HSDPA 900/2100 version, and then a HSDPA 850/1900/2100 version.

Apple do not, they only have 1 handset for the whole world.

What exactly does it mean when Vodafone say that the Apple iPhone devices are 2100Mhz compatible but are not 900Mhz compatible ?

That they won't work on a 2100Mhz radio frequency. They don't have a 2100Mhz receiver/transmitter, but they do have a 900Mhz capability.
