Hey Guys,

Will any unlocked phone compatible with telecoms WCDMA/UTMS 850 network be able to be used?
E.g will they have prepay sim cards we can just pop into a phone that works with the network? Like on Vodafone.

Also what frequency is Vodafone's GSM network?

Thanks :D

Two things.
Telecom have no intention of locking phones to prevent them from being used on other networks


I had been using a jailbroken 2G iphone on the new Telecom network until the GSM was turned off last week. I have no intention of changing the current network design to prevent this when the network is launched.
