Hey all, I just purchased an unlocked i320n, Awesome phone, but I put my AT&T SIM card in it, and it won't pick up my service. I live in Boston. I was wondering if there were network settings I have to change, if there are, I can't find them. Please help! :D

GSM/GPRS/EDGE 900/1800/1900

AT&T's network is made up of fragments from other's networks that they have absorbed so they have a mix of GSM850 and GSM1900 bands.

You may find Boston has AT&T on GSM850 :-(

Call AT&T and ask.

If so this phone will never work in your area.

Where did you buy it? Can you take it back and swop it for an i607 seeing as you like the formfactor? The i607 was supplied by Cingular / AT&T so will work fine.

Sorry bud - you could try eBay'ing it and buying an i607 or similar, used i607's run about $120.

CompUSA were clearing out i320 for $149 not that long ago so don't know what you'd get :-(
