Hi all,

I just got a Sony Ericsson W995a for an insurance claim on my SE C905.
Just so people know, this DOES work on Vodafone 3G 2100Mhz, as I haven't got my XT SIM yet and I can see the following networks at home (Chatswood, North Shore):
Vodafone 3G (HSPA)
Vodafone 2G
Telecom 3G
NZ Comms (2 Degrees)

I also see this on my nokia, but it has the network codes for the carriers,
vodafone NZ (because my phone has firmware from when vodafone was recognised as a carrier
NZL 24 - 2Degree's
NZL 05 - Telecom NZ I hope.

How can i change them?

My K800 which I've been using waiting for the 995 also used codes instead of the names. I'm unsure if this can be changed by the user - it is probably a firmware thing.
Regardless, you can't use these networks unless you have the correct SIM.
The only downer so far using the 995 with VFone is the branded firmware for TCom (TWorld). Bear in mind I've only had it for 30 mins!!
I think I will change to XT but gives me a little more time to decide.

I think my main point here though is that TCom advertise this phone as having the 2100Mhz/850Mhz 3G bands whereas SE & GSM arena list the specs of the 995a that it has 1800Mhz/850Mhz 3G bands. So TCom must have specialised version.
