beforenightfalls: thanks very much for all the info. the 2GB sd card worked well as did the cable. we still haven't got a headset but were thinking of an adaptor so you can plug in normal headphones, is that possible? would you also happen to know if you can change the settings so you can write a long text? this phone will only let me write one text at a time and its annoying!!! cheers.
Yes, you can get an adaptor for the head phones. Where are you based?
All CDMA phones can only send 160 characters in a text message; unfortunately there is no way around this.
If you PM me your details I can get one of those 2.5MM to 3.5MM audio converters sent out to you if you would like?
As for Roaming, you can always get a free loan phone for travel to non CDMA destinations, or if you have a GSM handset you can get a Telecom SIM card which you can use in that handset with your existing number while overseas. Otherwise if you have a look around the Geekzone forums you will see that Telecom is in the process of building out a new mobile network.
beforenightfalls: yes i see they are in the process of building a new network with GSM which is good. i only moved to telecom as i can't get vodafone reception at my new house. telecom works well so i'm pleased about that. i couldn't wait til nov to have a GSM telecom phone and even wonder if i'd get telecom GSM reception at my new house which is rural!
how much is an adaptor roughly for the headset? cheers.
The GSM network should provide similar national coverage to the current CDMA network if Telecom goes down that path, but I would expect the same coverage footprint for WCDMA @ 850MHz
I wasn't going to charge you for it, just post it to you .
