Help. I have been told my Nokia 6288 will work on the telecom XT network so I have got a sim card but am now VERY confused about how to change the setting so it accepts it and I can use it. Can anyone please help me??? I hate being phoneless.
you should use telecoms phone check to see if a phone you are looking at is compatible. www.telecom.co.nz/phonecheck input the IMEI and it indicates yes or no. Most UTMS 850 - 2100 devices are compatible. (both numbers must be listed not just one )
It's not locked it is just fully frequency compatible with vodafone only, whoever told you it would work on xt was partially right but it should not be used on xt as the majority of the xt network is 850 MHz compared with the 2100MHz of your phone. Xt does have a few 2100 MHz sites for extra capacity in large urban areas but for it to work properly on XT you need a phone with 850MHz. (all frequencys ( MHz) I refered to are UMTS/WCDMA)
