The term 'a' often refers to the american version which Telecom NZ align to. It is also referred to as a model, like Nokia as N95-2 or N95-3 etc.

Offtopic:
Paul, I just checked your website - you might want to change the following text you have there:
"Telecom?s new network is GSM 850Mhz. Their 3G network is 2100Mhz and will cover cities and other major metropolitan areas." Some customers may be unhappy. :)

Good point Kookoo, worth reminding people that XTNetwork has NO GSM. It is a 3G only network. 2G is sooo last century.

What does it mean by infil sites?

So if my N82 is 900mhz/2100mhz it'll work with telecom's 2100mhz . I know 850mhz doesn't work

It says 3g works if the handset is 850mhz then at the top it says it will work if you have 2100mhz so.. I don't understand?

If your phone does not do 3G 850 then it will be no good on XT. Looks like some 3G 2100 in big cities but not a lot. Your N82 wont get you very far.

Is there a time limit between top ups to keep prepay active?

Is the bonus offered when top up $20 or more just a starting promotion, or is it part of long term pricing model?

With texting caps on prepay do you have to pick 150 texts for $6 or 600 for $12 at beginning of month or is it see how many use, then work out which would've been best plan?

If only send 5 texts in month and on 150? is user charged $1 or $6.

Sorry in advance if any questions already asked, lot to read through.

If I am a Telecom NZ XT Customer, roaming downtown Sydney on WCDMA, can I make a video call to an XT Customer in New Zealand?

When will Telecom NZ publish coverage maps to replace the CDMA coverage maps? Will areas of New Zealand that have 2100 be represented (gerat for in-bound roamers).

What will Telecom NZ do to migrate WorldMode customers to WCDMA?

When will Alcatel-Lucent trial HSPA+ in New Zealand?

When will Telecom NZ offer HSPA+ devices? Before Christmas this year?

Has Telecom NZ changed any Terms and Conditions to reflect the new SIM card they are supplying?

Who owns the SIM card? Me (the Customer) or Telecom NZ?

@rugrat:



Currently it's 6 months between top-ups. I'm not sure about #2, but for TXT addons, you pick one at the beginning of the month. If you don't use the minimum amount of messages to be charged for that addon,you'll be charged for what you have used instead; eg: You have chosen TXT150, but you only send 5 messages - you'll only be charged $1.





@digitaldivide:



Video calls are only available in NZ to other Telecom XT network customers. Telecom owns the SIM card, and the terms and conditions have been updated to reflect this, as well as other things.





@Cantab:



Yes you can.

Umm I just checked with a mate at Telecom and the reply was no, its upfront. As soon as you send the first txt you pay for the whole addon. It's not a cap.

Same system as Vodafone

The terms and conditions on Telecom's website beg to differ with your friend:

- Depending on the TXT Extra you’ve subscribed to, you will be charged for the first set number of eligible TXT Extra messages per month you send at
$0.20 per message and receive your other allocated eligible text messages free (at $0.00 per message). For example, if you’ve subscribed to 150TXT Extra you will be charged $0.20 per message for the first 30 text messages and the next 120 text messages are free.
- If you do not exceed the first set number of eligible TXT Extra messages, you will only be charged for what you use that month and not the monthly
fee. For example, if you’ve subscribed to 150TXT Extra and you use less than 30 text messages per month then you will only be charged $0.20 per message and not the $6.00 monthly fee.

What is the SMS Message Centre number for the XT network? This will allow non XT handsets to be configured to receive SMS messages. Thanks.
