Hi all.  I have just purchased an HTC Legend (still on its way) thinking it would be XT compatible as only looked at Hz850 thinking that was what I needed. What a novice.

Is anyone able to advise if it would work on XT or not with these specs please?  What am I looking for on any other model to ensure XT compatible?  Don't want to unbox if the wrong one, thanks.

XT is a WCDMA850 network, it has some 2100 sites in the main centres, outside of this, you will have no coverage

This model is better suited to Vodafone / 2Degrees (900/2100)

Oh, thank you so much for the clarification.  Will have to cancel the order and look out for WCDMA 850.  Appreciated.

Thanks!  Found Legend XT compatibles here http://techbrands.co.nz/product.php?id_product=297 and here http://www.mobicity.co.nz/htc-hd-legend-nextg.html.  Look like they will work.  The Legend really suits my needs and is not top end price.

Sweet, the NextG ones are Telstra (Oz) on WCDMA850 which is the same as XT.
