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.
