I've seen on this forum that a few people have bought A8183 Desires to run on the XT network.

I'm looking to do the same and would appreciate any feedback on your experiences running the Desire on XT.

Thanks

There is the desire HD coming in the next few days. It appears there will be an XT version coming also. I'd stay tuned for that.

It's been said you should wait for the HD, depending on your budget, you may like to do that. My A8183 works well on XT - no different to vodafone's network except XT is quicker. In fact, the connection has been more reliable than my old CDMA phone.

My 3g connection even survived Christchurch's earthquake.

I have one next to me. Works fine.
The Desire HD sits in a different price range, so i'm not too worried

Thanks for the comments.

Regarding the Desire HD I suspect it may be some time before an XT version becomes available. And the price will no doubt be quite a bit more than the current Desire. Looks like a nice phone though.

Yep - I have the A8183 Desire (from mobicity) on XT and it's great. Just tonight the final crack came about and I was able to remove the Telstra startup logo. It's simple to root the phone and remove the Telstra rubbish that's on the phone.

Cheers - N
