Hi there

Last Time I roamed across the Tasman to Oz I was on the Vodafone network. Took my phone and bought a new sim and Robert became my father's brother (and I had his contact too). Now I am on the Telecom network and need some advice.

I have a Telecom roaming phone - a Nokia that I received last week. I'm fairly certain they told me not to turn it on until I reached OZ but I need to get my contacts onto the phone. If I switch my real phone off and the loaner on and sync with my computer will I create any problems?

Any and all advice gratefully accepted :)

You can leave your current phone on, The loan phone won't connect to the local network (will say "emergency only" or "limited servce") so just sync away. Might be a good idea to just turn it on and make sure it starts up okay anyway though they are pretty reliable.
