I have an O2 locked xda. Tried it with TIM and Omnitel in
Italy. My xda recognised a GPRS network (with one of the two
operators, can't remember which) but could not connect via GPRS,
had to resort to GSM.
You can buy an xda from O2 Germany which I think (you will need
to check) is not SIM locked. Visit

Of course no, a locked XDA is, as the name implies,
locked to the O2 network.

It has been a very very bad surprise for to discover that
Fujitzu-Siemens will not commercialize the phone module for my
Loox....so I'm going to look for something else...
What do you think about the XDA O2 in Italy?
Is it a good phone and a good PDA?
Or is better to wait for the new Samsung or Hitachi?

Subject: mda and converted xda in italy

we use mdas, which do work with gprs in italy.
we also purchased an unlocked xda for use in austria. which at
first did not work with the
biggest provider here (A1 Mobilkom). they found some network
settings they could tweak
and the xda now works with their gprs.
the xda (gprs) always worked with ONE (no changes required)
before A1 found which settings to adapt, we gave our xda to
t-mobile and they somehow
flashed the phone-rom so it would work in the t-mobile gprs net
(thus also in italy).
so it boils down to the following:
** either the provider allows the xda access to its gprs network
up front (like ONE in austria)
** or the provider is willing to change settings (like A1
** or you flash your xda to make it and mda and use a t-mobile
network (11 countries at present)

... but you need ROM 3.14!
I upgraded from 3.02 et voila' - new utilities to set
GPRS authentication (PAP vs CHAP), and now it works
BTW italian provider TIM requires PAP...

I'm using a new unlocked xda on WIND in Rome. Phone works fine
but can't get the gprs to work.
The settings seem to keep adjusting the baud rate down to 19200
I've added the code string provided by WIND customer support but
to no avail.
All other settings I've adapted from their online manual linking
an iPaq 3870 to gprs with an T68i.
Support with WIND are unfamiliar with the xda device.
The failure message reads "Unable to connect for an unknown
I'd be glad of any help if anyone's cracked it!
