Don't respond to Emails, phone calls, or web pages which tell you to call
an "809" area Phone Number.
This is a very important issue of Scam Busters because it alerts you to a
scam that is spreading *extremely* quickly, can easily cost you $2400 or
more, and is difficult to avoid unless you are aware of it.
We'd like to thank Verizon for bringing this scam to our attention.
This scam has also been identified by the National Fraud Information
Center and is costing victims a lots of money.
There are lot of different permutations of this scam.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:

? about GSM/TDMA selection - 6340i field test
A bit of background - I live in the boonies in NW Virginia, a spotty area for Cingular coverage. I had minor problems with quality and a 5165 phone, so upgraded to 6340i and GAIT. Fortunately I live on the SE side of a mountain with sufficient elevation to give me signal strength in the high 80s while at home.
I've been observing while in field test mode (after doing a lot of research) various network selection characteristics, and have questions.

Cingular World Phones are unlocked?
I also have heard from people that sometimes it is hit-or-miss. If you are lucky, you may get a phone that is unlocked from Cingular. But their next batch of phones can be locked.
Not sure if someone who works in Cingular can confirm that. Thanks.
Deal on Cingular.com!!!
Under rate plans, package deals, the second offer is for a free 3595 (nothing special) but for the GSM Nation 850 package for only $39.99 a month! I contracted in @ the previous 500 for $39.99, expecting it to drop, which it did, to 450 min under their new prices (though with 1000 mobile to mobile- of course, i don't know many people I call regularly on cingular, so I opted for the 500 rollover min) I think it's just a typo, as it's the same price for the 450 or 850 deal they have there, and with the x427 phone it's phone for $49.99, and both the 450 and 850 plans are $59.99. If anyone's looking to get a deal,...
