Hi everyone,

I bought this handset because I friend assured me that it would work with the Telecom network by just inserting a Telecom sim card into the sim card slot, instead of a Vodafone one (the handset is Vodafone).

It just says "Emergency Calls Only" when I put it in - does this mean I can't use it on the XT network? It's not 3G, and I was told after by my friend that it has to be 3G to work on the XT network.

Can I use this phone on the XT network or not? 

Thanks very much!

The handset will not work on XT.

It's not even a 3G handset, it's GSM only. Telecom do not have a GSM network.

According to the specifications:

It won't work because the phone is specifically built for GSM network not WCDMA network....
Tough luck buddy, Ask your friend for the refund :-)
