The primary difference is in how far you can range from the "docking station" (the higher the GHz, the farther the range); resistance to interference (the higher the GHz, the better, but see the next paragraph), and, sometimes, the number of different channels which can be used for a conversation to prevent contention with other people near you using the same phone or using a phone scanner.

One caveat: if you have a wireless router in your house to share an Internet connection, stream music, etc., it transmits at 2.4 GHz. A 2.4GHz phone may cause problems. Go for either a 900 MHz or a 5.8 GHz phone to avoid interrupting your wireless.

Thanks Steve, the 900MHz is what I have,so will stick to it.
