Are you using an American N95? Because the New Zealand version doesn't work in 850MHz - the American versions do.

I didnt know that.... is that original ones, or just 8GB ?

Could be my new handset at launch then. Although I do like the E51 - but a better camera would be nice.


AFAIK both. Some versions of the N95 and N95 8GB have 2100Mhz WCDMA (NZ etc) while others, i.e. the American Version (Telstra Next G included) have 850Mhz and 1900Mhz WCDMA.

Personally I like the idea of an E71 (W850) Smile.

I notice I can see Telecom NZ on my E51 which is UMTS 850/2100 in Auckland CBD and Grey Lynn.  How many people in NZ will have 850mhz umts phones at present I wonder with the exception of the iphone?  My phone was a parrelel import.
