    Default N85 on Vodafone

    Any reason why I cant pull the sim out of my Telecom N85 and put a Vodafone one in, and then what other changes would I need to make.

    There is a specific "AT&T-friendly" (Same as XT) model available. The two networks aren't interchangeable on this phone, I believe.

    There's no changes you can make, but it should "just work".

    AFAIK, the difference between Telecom & Vodafone is that XT is 3G-only (no GSM), plus uses 850MHz for data (& I think 2100 in metro areas), whereas Vodafone uses 900/2100 for data & 900/1800/1900 for voice.

    So the net result is that you may have poor/slow (or nonexistent?) data coverage outside the main centres. Not sure about the nonexistent bit, maybe Vodafone will run 2G data, which means you could get a GPRS connection, but basically at dialup speed.
    There are 10 types of people in this world - those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    its going to end up just being voice and txt (mainly txt) and any browsing will use the wifi at home or elsewhere so we may be ok. I know we had a nokia on the vodafone network that we just swapped sims over to Telecom so hoping it will be the same.

    this gives me some confidence it will work http://www.trademe.co.nz/Mobile-phon...-296810854.htm
