    Hi to all!

    I live in Israel and bought a new Nokia 6800 from T-Mobile in the US.
    SIM unlock worked fine - it now doesn't reject my SIM. On the other
    hand, the phone refuses to identify my (or any other) local network. I
    went to the service provider and was told the phones from the US don't
    work here (-; must be kidding! My old phone and currect SIM work great
    all over Europe.

    So what went wrong? How come that this phone accepts my SIM but not a
    non-european network?

    Thanks a lot for your help!
    Amit

    It is a US phone it only runs on the 850 and 1900 net. I Europe we use 900
    and 1800.
