Hi

Is there a version of the Nokia N95 that works on the Telecom Network. I like the latest 8 gig but I can only find Vodafone ones on TradeMe..

Cheers Possum..

The N95 is only a GSM phone. No CDMA version exists so it can't be used on Telecom.

It does however do GSM850MHz and WCDMA 2100 MHz so will work on Telecom's GSM/WCDMA network when it is launched.

As I understand Nokia stopped Making CDMA handsets!

I could be incorrect

Nokia still design CDMA handsets AFAIK, but leave the making up to other companies.
Apparently it is due to the chipsets being too expensive for them to keep up?

So, will we have to use the Telecom branded n95 (assuming they will be selling it) or can we use an unlocked non telecom sold n95's once telecom's gsm network is up and running?

Im assuming telecom will be selling a far greater range of phones once gsm is up and running because the cdma range really isnt the greatest!

Any unlocked GSM phone should work just fine for basic functions on Telecoms new network.

Number portability will have nothing to do with your proposed transition, as Telecom is already your service provider. Telecom will however arrange for your number to be transferred from your current CDMA service to the new WCDMA / EDGE service.
