antoniosk:
freitasm: The problem is that the Nokia Lumia 920 is unlocked, LTE capable but if I put a competitor's SIM card it won't work on LTE. If I go to the USA and get an AT&T SIM card it won't work on LTE.

Not actually a good experience from a top of the line handset.


Which is why you go for a brand that tells the operators what to do and is not beholden to them.

Even if it is fanboi widgets.

A


to provide some more context here:

the Nokia Lumia 920 devices that Telecom NZ sell here make no claim to offer 4G/LTE (check the side of the box)

so you can:
buy an open market unlocked Lumia phone yourself with 4G enabled
you can download the open market ROM image and flash it yourself
wait until Telecom rolls out 4G and enables it on their Lumia 920 model




populism, the most important and misunderstood movement of our time

It wouldn't surprise me if Telecommunications equipment supplied by Ericcson, Nokia Siemens networks, Alcatel-Lucent etc is made in China.

Not sure about Ericsson but NSN setup a manufacturing plant in India just to cater for the Indian Telco's which total in excess of  150,000 base station sites (per operator) and were making over 5,000 a month. 

Kind of makes Telecoms 1,400+ sites a bit of a joke. Half a weeks work and they'd be done.

Anyone know if the HTC ones will be supported?

The asian SKU (I assume that is what we are getting) will be 1800/1900mhz LTE compatable
