I recently purchased an Omnia 2 off-shore and on returning to NZ find that it only operates at 900/1900/ & 2100 in the 3G band. Thus my coverage seems to be limited to only where the XT is operating at 2100.  Does anyone have any ideas on how I can set this handset up to operate at 850?

Sorry, but it's a hardware limitation. The only way to get 850 MHz is to buy a handset that supports it.

OK thanks - guess I'm stuck with limited coverage until 2100 is further rolled out (if ever).

2100mhz on XT is in fill coverage / capacity only

Sell it and get the 850/2100mhz device

There is an 850/2100 version of the Omnia device?

I thinkthe Omnia 2 model you need to get is I8000L, which is 850/2100 or 850/1900/2100
