Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Just FYI, my 925 from PB Tech is an Australia/NZ variant. It doesn't have any carrier crapware, so I'm assuming it's an OEM phone. 4G is enabled, but obviously I can't actually use that on 2degrees. Since it's Amber I've also got Data Sense. Tracking which apps are using the most data is sweet.

The hardware itself is fantastic. It feels awesome. Normally I wouldn't like AMOLED but it goes great with the UI. A massive speed boost over my old Mozart running 7.8. It's nice to have 3rd party apps run as buttery smooth as the rest of the OS!

I am tossing up between a 925, 920 or 820. Is anyone using the 925 on the Telecom network? I read somewhere that they are not selling the Nokia 925 due to compatibility issues withe their Network. Feedback?

Providing it has the Telecom frequencies I'd go ahead and get it, if that's the phone you want.

I'd take Telecom's comments with a grain of salt. Telecom were supposed to be getting the N8 and/or the E7 when they came out. When they didn't get them the answer I got was they weren't compatible with the Telecom network. We've used both on the Telecom network without any problems.
