Hi, all!

I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a way I could keep using my Vivacity in the USA. While in the UK, I just used a giffgaff simcard, but I can't seem to find anything comparable (by price and quality) in the USA. Does anyone know of any good plans or prepaid simcards that might be compatible with this phone?

Thanks!

Apparently the Vivacity operates on the following frequencies, according to gsmarena;

2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
3G Network HSDPA 900 / 2100

But I suspect it also operates on 1900 for 3G, seeing as the OSFII does. Only AT&T or T-Mobile will work with your phone, because they're the only GSM networks. I don't know if 3G will work, but I suspect it's the same technology. Check first if that's important to you.
