Hi

I have an Omnia 7 that is running on the two degrees network.  It's an import and so does not handle MMS.

The reception on it has never been great and we live in a semi rural area that does not help.  Have noticed that XT coverage in our area is very good however.

Lately, the phone seems to drop reception altogether - at home, in town, and must be restarted to come right.

So my question is whether it would work on the Telecom XT network?  Appreciate that even if it does, the current reception issue may not be resolved - that may well be a phone fault.. but worth a shot.

Or maybe I should just go with one of those smart looking blue Lumia's Smile

- thanks

Somehow I suspec this device does not support 850MHz WCDMA. No, it won't work.

Get a Nokia Lumia 800 - if you want I have a $100 discount code I won't use.

Its actually my wife's phone.. better check with her first.
I may well take you up on the discount offer. thanks!!

Just another query - take it that I would be best with a Telecom phone rather than an imported one that go for maybe $250 or so cheaper?

Better to buy the phone directly from telecom or their retail partners in NZ if you are planning to use their network. I also have a $100 off code for the Nokia Lumia 710 which is bit cheaper than the Lumia 800. if you need a code for that then PM me.
