Nokia 6200 from cingular has some settings blocked out!!!!

by Mendel    Mar 15, 2004, 12:12 PM

the AT&T version of this phone, has "System Selection" a option to manuly search for service, or to place it on automatic..

anyway the cingular version does not have it, and I just spoke to NOKIA and was told that CINGULAR BLOCKED OUT THOSE SETTINGS

so does anybody know of a way to change that, and to be able to pick other carriers,

so far where I am, even in the OFFICIAL dead spots (cingular acknowledged it themselves) since its in and around a city, where cingular does have coverage, I am picking up 0-1 bar of service, and still does not search for another carrier (AT&T GSM has full service there)

from the way NOKIA put it, ("CINGULAR BLOCKED OUT THOSE SETTINGS OF SYSTEM SELECTION...") sounds like, this plan of free roaming is a scam b/c you could only pick up cingular towers, and in states where cingular has no towers at all, and they only have a roaming agreement, it will say CINGULAR EXTENDED.

but that is with any carrier even if they charge roaming, there is allways roaming agreements..

so what does it mean FREE ROAMING?!?!?!?!?
(which sounds like any tower, exept the phone is blocked out from using most towers)

does anybody know of a way to change those settings?!?!?!?
