using phones in China
can GSM 850 cell phones work in China? I heard you need GSM 900.
I have a Nokia 3100 (triband) and a Samsung x427 (dual band) .. both support 850 but neither supports 900..
any advice? thanks!

Best Source for Unlocked Phones?
1. A quad band phone
2. An unlocked phone
3. A Nokia most likely
That said it seems my options are very limited based on what is avaialable on the market. For all the globe trotters (and anyone that considers themselves an expert on the topic) can you please recommend any phones I might consider? Futhermore, is anyone familiar with a good third party carrier that sells unlocked phones?
Note, I'm very open to other options so please feel free to e-mail me privately if you hav...

Buying a phone in the US for use in Europe
Im mostly interested in phones similar to the iPhone in functionality, that is with good internet browsing functionality and a video/music player. As these phones are usually quite expensive, im thinking that the savings will be worth it.
So basically i would like to know if there are any major hindrances. For example:
1. Can you buy a phone unlocked without a subscription etc?
2. Will it be as easy as just putting my old SIM-card into the new phone?
Can you buy phones in the US supporting UMTS
(or do you only get EDGE)?
using european phones in the us
I have some friends travelling through the States. They have a so called quad-band phone which has the obvious 1900MHz band needed in most of the US.
Unfortunately in large parts of Utah, California and Arizona they could not get any connections. Strangely enough this could not be attributed to lack of mobile phone ground relay stations as local americans were able to use their phones in some of these places.
Any ideas how this can be?
asia is more advance than the u.s. when it comes to cellphone technology!
Bringing a phone from Japan
I have US Cellular right now which is a CDMA carrier, but I am willing to switch over to AT&T for GSM if I must, but my question: is this even possible to do? Can I bring a phone from Japan and put it to a service here in the US?
Is it possible to and buy a pre-paid sim card over there to use with the phone?
I would appreciated if someone could help me out with this!
Japan and US
I need a 3G phone to operate on Japan's networks and one that Cingular, Verizon, Sprint, or T-mobile offers since they seem to be prevalent in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area where I will be going to school. My sophomore year I plan to go to Japan. Can I get a one year agreement through one of these companies and then go to Japan and get a provider over there for a year and then come back to the states? I don't want to rent a phone in Japan nor do I need to retain my US number. I don't want to be paying roaming rates all the time. Calls to the US will be done through VoIP anyway.
Does anyone here have experience with tra...
need help w/ options to call from US to Australia
Some way to call from US (either moblie or land based) to an Australian Mobile Phone for an affordable rate. I was wondering does any company domestically partner with an international company to offer like a family plan or like a discounted rate if you are calling mobile to mobile within the same company. Any information would be much appreciated. Please email me directly at email@example.com with any important info. Thanks everyone!
Confused about International phone services. HELP!
I am currently living in The United States. In August i will be going to India, then two months later to Thailand, then to Australia in March.
My current phone is a P.O.S.
I am interested in buying the T-Mobile Wing.
Here are a couple questions:
1) Will the Wing work if i get it unlocked + put a new Sim card of the country that i am in and subscribe to their plan?
2) If i join the new company's plan, will the web browsing and all the web features work?
3) What phone would u recommend for my situation instead of the Wing. I am a T-Mobile customer, but there's always Ebay for my phone needs.
Thank you in advance.
China / USA
Oh wait I bet I can't port my US number while in China. Anyway if I did get a phone from china and bring it back here before setting it up... how difficult is the it getting it set up with a cingular acct if the phone is a foreign GSM?
