If you go to the 2degrees section of Dick Smith's site and look at the HTC One X in an enlarged view, the phone says Your Telecom on the model shown.  Obviously they have just used the same image from the Telecom section, but it just doesn't look right.  

Do I win a new phone for spotting?  ;-) Mine got a little damp today

you got a little damp? I don't think that's appropriate.

Some dumbass salesman from Digital Mobile suggested 2degrees would be bought for Telstra. Suppose its possible but the guy was dodgy as f*** (as is normal with Digital Mobile)

Don't get me wrong but isn't 2 Degrees still on the vodafone network or at least now using the same band lines?

2degrees use their own cell towers, and only roam on Vodafone where there is no native 2degrees coverage.

Pure speculation, but a lot of people still talk about this; as if you shouldn't become a customer because they will sell.

Quiz - Where is their native reception? Most people think it's only in three regions.

Thanks for the heads up, I've raised it with the Channel Manager.

Just to confirm, we are NOT owned by Telecom. :)

Good to see its fixed now, so do I win an HTC One X? Just joking. And we all know you aren't owned by Telecom. Keep up the great work.
