Yip NZL05 is Telecom - the firmware in your phone isn't new enough to know NZL05 is Telecom.

What phone do you have?

Yeah i mentioned this in another thread a couple of weeks ago. It seems as its now the default network as my phone locks to it (before i had to manually select it everytime) Not only that but its also 3G+ now, as it wasnt a week ago. No signs of NZL05 for me but thats not suprising as my phone is not compatible Tongue out.. Stupid LG viewty p.o.s.. i knew i should have held out and got a iphone..
