Hi all,

been browsing about and thinking of trying one of these out. Have access to a UK one with the same alcatel/Lucent 9361 (v2) as used in nz...

any way I can get this working on my home line ADSL (VFNZ) and VF mobile?

i.e. flash to local firmare, ring up VF and live the 3G 5Bar dream?




work Work  vs Home: Home 

*Sigh* price of country living I guess ;)

PhantomNVD: Any good reason why you wouldn't want people to extend your network for you 'for free'?


Because how will they know this specific unit is compliant with local regulations? How would they know the power sources are safe and provide what is needed? How would they know if the unit has the specific firmware version needed for local use?

A Sure Signal unit has to work on a certain carrier in the 3G 2100Mhz band so are made for NZ requirements these would not be the same as for the UK unit,

Comparing it to a handset is not valid they are a very different device
