Problem with Nokia 1208

I bought the phone in Russia. it worked there. Seller told me it would work in Canada. Nokia declare that the phone supports the following operating frequencies GSM 900/1800 EGSM 850/1900. I came to Canada and it doesn't work here. "No Network coverage" it writes. I have international roaming indeed. The phone doesn't find a Net even without SIM card inserted. In this case it has to let me do Emergency Call at least. The issue is with the phone itself. What's wrong with it? Is it fixable? Thanks

    That's an idea!

    Honestly speaking, I was provided with the following expert opinion: "the phone is dual band but it comes in two versions, one for USA/Canada (GSM 850-1900) and one for Europe (GSM 900-1800)" I'm inclined to believe in this. So, the one bought in Russia won't work in Canada. It's a pity that this information is not provided by Nokia themselves. I had to contact with independent experts and to investigate the question myself. Nokia still continue telling me that the one bought in Russia should work in Canada. I find it hard to believe.

    Finally, I would like to replace my one for american version. Where can I find a store to get it changed? Is there a one around Toronto?

    Thanks

    It's vital I should keep my cell # unchanged. So I have to use the same SIM card, I only need the device to be changed.

Hello i have bought a hd2 t-mobile in USA. seller declared it works well. when arrived, i have changed WP7 with Android, but nothing more. Phone had a bad signal reception, near a HTC legend well...


There is a little white tab on the sidewall of the battery well - should be toward the top of the phone. If it's pink, it means there's damage to the inside and it won't be repaired by the manufacturer.

I need an instruction manual for nokia 1208 rtg bonus, mine got lost in hospital. phone is only 3 weeks old.


Citifan,

This is me reading from the manual, "check www.nokia.com/support or your local website for the latest version of this guide, additional information, downlownloads, and sevices related to your product." I had the same problem with my motorola, and got a full booklet to print off. Nokia must have the same service on their network, oh by the way I bought a nokia 1208 just for work yesterday and found the best way of finding how it works, is just to play with it, if you have a specific question
mail me on mcculloughdave10@aol.com.
Best Wishes

Dave.
