hi all,
i got n85 from oversea, and i want to use it with the new telecom xt network. but unfortunately, i sort of couldn't use it because of the reception problem.
no matter where i go, i couldn't get a reception (except in town) even on the area that say good coverage.
what is the problem with that?
any help would appreciate,

It's probably the wrong variant for XT

If you pull of the battery and look on the stickers on the phone you see a model number.
I'm guessing yours has N85-1. If this is the case then your N85 is a 900/2100mhz UMTS variant, not a 850/2100mhz UMTS variant which you do need to work with Vodafone.

Your phone will work fine on Vodafone and 2 Degrees.

oh i see, that make sense for me now. before, i have try alot of solution to get it work even went down to telecom store..
but if u say the problem variant with xt, why would i get reception while in town?isn't it suppose to be no reception at all?
So over all, could i still use it with telecom?or any way that i can get reception with xt?

it will still work on 2100 frequency, but Telecom only uses 2100 for infill in built up areas. probably why you get a little bit of patchy signal there. the primary network Telecom uses is 850.
