I've recently bought an HTC HD7 running NoDo from America, it works fine with Vodafone, but when I switch to an XT SIM and start it, Connection Manager pops up, and configures it for Telecom, but the no signal indicator still shows, and I can't make calls / go on the Internet.

I've tried adding the APN wap.telecom.co.nz and internet.telecom.co.nz and restarting, but still no change.

With the HD7 available on/soon available on Telecom, I'm confused as to why it's not getting any signal. Does anyone have any ideas that could help?

Telecom and Vodafone use different frequencies with their networks.

Depending where you live (what cell sites are in your area) and what frequencies your phone does you might not get service.

HTC will most likely do 2 versions of the Phone . One which uses frequencies which work well with Vodafone and one which does frequencies which work well with Telecom.

If your handset is not a 850 MHz device then it won't work on Telecom New Zealand.

Yeah, doing a Google search for HD7 850mhz shows you're both correct, this version of the HD7 doesn't support Telecom.

You guys are quick to respond, thanks for the assistance!
