Re: NOKIA 8800 Network problem

The Nokia 8800 is a tri band phone capable of connecting to GSM 900/1800/1900. This should work in OZ unless there is some sort of restriction imposed by your service provider. Check here for a list of service providers in Australia. They should be able to sort you out with a working sim card at least:

How to open line the Nokia 6680

hey there, as far as australia is concern most of the service providers(3mobile,virgin,vodafone,telstra,optus, etc.) over there put a network lock on each n every cell phone they sell. It seems your cell phone is network locked so you can either search a NETWORK LOCK OPENING HACK on internet or try to contact the customer care center of the same service provider where your friend bought this cell from.
