Hi, I am planning to move to Vodafone from Telecom due to the bigtime plan removal. I got a question regarding the telecom modem. please help anyone:)

does anyone knows if the Thomson TG585v7 wireless modem will work on vodafone network?

or is it locked to Telecom Network? If in case it will work on Vodafone do i need to change any settings?

Hi Thank you for the response. So the settings that I just need to change would be the username and password? is that right? or are there more complicated stuff? just like DNS servers or anything like that?

DNS settings should be set to auto.... you'll just need to change username and pass to connect to VF.
