I flashed my Okta Touch to 6.1 last year before anyone knew about the whole HDR username and password issue. I then read a few posts around the place saying that some users had managed to get EVDO back by sending their phone back to Telecom for a re-flash.

Now I'm guessing that Telegistics are the only outfit that do this work for Telecom and after charing me $85 dollars for the priviledge they are telling me that it is not possible to re-flash a 6.1 version phone as this version will have corrupted the phone.

I told the guy at Telegistics that I have read of others having this fixed and he says that they must have gone somewhere else or done it themselves.

Is there anyone here who has been through this successsfully, i.e. had their phone re-flashed fixing the EVDO access??





When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

You could possibly take your phone to a local repair shop, them may be able to do it.

I thought that Telegistics were the only repairers for Telecom handsets? Do you know of any others - preferably in Wellington?
