Are there any vodafone handsets that you can use your xt sim card in ??

we were told anything 850mhz by a woman at vodafone ?? so we bought a v3 and its not working with the xt sim card . anyone else tried it ??

The XT network is 3G only, so you will need a handset that works with the 850MHz UTMS (3g) network. I don't think nay of the Motorola V3 variants will work.

BTW there is a compatibility checker on the Telecom website - http://preview.tinyurl.com/mumvmd

V3s are quad-band though, aren't they? Perhaps the phone needs to be unlocked if it's Vodafone branded.

The originals were quad band, but only 2g (XT is 3g only). According to gsmarena.com the V3xx should work, but the other V3s won't

Did you buy it from Vodafone? If they told you it would work on XT and doesn't, you are entitled to return it under the CGA.

850 WCDMA (or whatever the letters are), Vodafone is GSM. There are some phones that will do both but not many. Phones in NZ are not allowed to be sold locked by the retailer. Import phones on here may be different.
