I've got an XT sim in my voda e71-1 and it won't see the xt network.

Same with trying to get the sim to work in my xu870 data card, it can scan and find 53005 which is xt....

Sim works fine if I put it in a dirty xt phone for voice.. don't have one that does data.

E71-1 is a 900/2100 device it's no good for XT.

What's wrong with the XU870? This supports 850 and you mention it does see the XT network - what is the problem?

e71 should work in 2100 coverage shouldn't it?



On xp with nova's mobilink it picks up 53005 which is xt but says it status is unknown.



I'm in akl cbd.

xu870 works fine with 2deg sim card, so its not locked.

The E71 needs to work on both frequencies for it to connect to XT.

No if it can see a xt 2100 site it should be fine

Telecom's network only has limited 2100MHz coverage and only in the major cities. The network itself is all 850MHz 3G - the 2100 is just added infill and capacity in the cities.

If you have a E71-1 that does 900/2100 3G then it will connect to XT - but only in an area that has 2100Mhz coverage.

Yup - if you have 2100MHz coverage, and a working unlocked 2100MHz, then you would be in business.

Sounds like you do not have the required coverage.

Recommendation as above - get an 850MHz unit.

I think it may be my sim that is intermittent.
