I am just wanting to know if anyone has a Nexus 4 running on Telecoms Network. My dad took his new Nexus 4 to get a microsim into a telecom store and they told them they could not connect to the mobile Internet on it.

And then mention that because of this they cannot switch old simcard phone number  to new microsim.

Not sure of the details exactly but does this sound about right.

Thanks in advance,

Does it support 3G / WCDMA on 850Mhz?

Hi Rod,

The nexus 4 should work fine on telecom. I am currently using one right now.
It seems they were not familiar with the device. Pm if you would like me to try
Sort this out for you.

Works perfectly. Better than the Galaxy S i9000T for reception in fact. They are incorrect in saying it won't work.

All you need to do is enter APN settings if they dont appear automatically - although mine did.

I'm in the process of updating mine to 4.2.2 as i type.

Thanks exactly what I was thinking. Obviously the guy that my dad was talking to did not know what he is doing

Out of curiosity, what APN should I have other than telecom MMS and telecom default? Mines working fine, I just stuffed the SIM in and away it went, hopefully your experience is the same, OP.

I moved with my Nexus 4 from 2D to Telecom and all APN and MMS settings appeared automatically (presumably loaded on the SIM)

Its working fine now, I think my Dad just got the wrong person the first time and did not know how to do his job.

So it is working fine on telecom.
