    You'd almost never know this was a triband phone - afaik it's never
    mentioned in the manual and the SE web site doesn't list it as a
    "feature". At the bottom of the list of features the 3 bands are
    listed.

    Anyway how does it change bands? Someone said to go to ...network
    selection..manual but here in the US that doesn't lead to anything. If
    it detects emissions on a different band, does it then offer a choice?

    It should *in theory* search everything automatically when you perform a
    manual search. You can then select your home network, and the handset should
    search for this first in the future.

    I have never seen an "option" to switch bands manually, other than my
    Samsung V200 (V205).

    Hope this helps,

    Right. Normally, you will have the phone switched off when changing from
    900/1800 networks to 1900 or vice-versa (as you will probably be in an
    aircraft). When you switch it back on, it should just find the correct
    network. I have never tried swapping from 900/1800 to 1900 in 'real life'
    without switching off, but the phone should be able to swap even if left
    switched on. It might take a short while to swap.

    There are also menu options for selecting networks manually (connectivity
    menu)

    Early Motorolas with tri-band had this, L7089 was one I think, and the
    even earlier one (forget the phone's type number) that still used the
    rectangular/sloping battery and was half-brick sized. Orange called it the
    mr601 in the UK.

    In other words "All new mobiles should be able to switch bands
    automatically".

    With a few exceptions

    Thanks, all. We've used a long line of Motorolas and all the 7x89
    series and even the T/P280 I think requires one to manually select the
    band, so the 610 is a surprise.
