    Yes, I also purchased the S6 dual, and found that after installing the SIM card as instructed, contacting AT&T/Cingular etc., the phone still says unregistered. Or no connection signal is coming through. Looking at the "solution" to the previous writer, I told them about it also being a Triband, which according to them, should have nothing to do with it. Even with the SIM connected to the S6, they were showing connections on their end. It's difficult to get the manufacturers of this phone to response to any emails regarding this product. Im beginning to think we're SOL.

    Any resolutions?

Ok all - after much research, and consulting with a manufacturer in another country, this is the reply I received.

"I think you'd better contact with the supplier which you buy from.Since we different supplier offer different mobile phones.And I think it maybe related to the USA,you use GSM850/900/1800/1900....If the mobile phone you buy is GSM900/ can not be used in your you should buy the real quad band mobile phone...."

Afterwards, I contacted ATT/Cingular and found this to be true. Here in the U.S. we are on a 850 Frequency, thus not allowing us to use this phone. I sent a message to the manufacturer I purchased mine from online and told them the same thing, but of course no response. . . So bottom line we're SOL
