I have a 1810TZ which comes with the connection software for Vodafone but looking at the specs on the WWAN card look like it should work fine on the XT network. (Huawei 3G EM770W as far as I can tell)
So is it possible to get software to connect to the XT network?

Yeah it should be possible, you don't need the software, just put in the telecom APNs and #99 in the number field :)

Tell me how you go, I've got my Acer 1410 ordered, but haven't ordered the PCIe card or modem yet

Well I got some of the way today but still missing something and really not sure how to find out what.

I uninstalled the Vodafone software + Drivers and installed the Acer connection software for the card.

With a XT sim in the software seems to be connecting to the network showing full signal strength and displaying Telecom NZ. I created a profile pointing at internet.telecom.co.nz for the APN but it sits for a while trying to connect and then seems to time out.

Thinking I really should have put this in the Telecom forum so that someone from Telecom might see it and have a suggestion (or two). Any chance of getting this thread moved?
