Question about Nokia Cell Phones
Hi, on 3 branded devices (Nokia,SE etc) you can't change the band mode. This modification is built in to the hardware to prevent using 2G (GSM) network whom 3 have to pay "roaming" charges. The only way to use GSM mode is to modify the hware. Forum rules doesn't support hacking etc so can't help you here...

To be abble use GSM mode you need to change your product code and get rid of 3firmware,which void your warranty and you wont be abble acces certain services (Planet 3) . You'll need programm called NSS to change your Product code.

Inside the interface at the> top left <there you see "File" click there and choose "open file" and then select the approprait Product type i.e "which is written on the back panel inside the battery of every Nokia(Type RM-000).After doing this again at the left top count from "File"1..2..3..the 4th one is "Flashing" press there, when you click there you'll see three sub-menus, just select the "Firmware Update" again you'll see another interface. Look at the product code there should be blank and put your "mouse tool" at the straight end from the "Product Code" there is a Button and choose the code which is written in the back side of your phone. e.g CODE:0000000.if the same code does not found just take one which is higher.
