    i live in miami and i found a cell phone in the airport were i work, its from japan i know because the letter on the phone are both in japanese symbols and american, anyway, the phone uses a SIM card just like my sony eircsson that i have with cingular, when i switched the sim card it read it but it keeps on saying searching for network and the antenna never raises any bars, im assuming its becasue its searching for a japan network, is their anyway i can convert the cellphone to work here in the us, the cellphone is extremeley nice and has video digital cammera and everything

    check what brand is that cell phone and go to their web site. let say nokia! go to nokia website and check the model and the frequency. asia use 900mhz, europe use 1800mhz and u.s & canada use 1900mhz. im sure that phone is not from japan! japan is a tdma (time division multiple access) country like at&t use to be. they don't use sim card. maybe that from any country from asia, not even korea. korea is a cdma (code division multiple access) country don' use sim card like sprint and verizon. if that phone is a single band asia only! no way you can use that to u.s & canada. but if that phone is tri-band you can use that anywere in the world. get the brand and check the web for frequency of that phone to make sure.

    i can;t find a web site for them, the brand name is "G-Plus" and im assuming that maybe it is a triband since on the phones buttons it has both chinese letters and english letter and not just chinese letters, plus all over the phone their is writing in english like the model number and such but their is also some chinese writing. i did some searching around for the make and model and while most websites that came up ion my search where in chinese, one came up in english that was actually selling the phone in difeerent colors for 447 dollar.

    is their any way i can change the frequency? what else can i do since i can;t find the web site for that company?

    o.k. i went to the site that u post and they located in new zealand. if u look closely to PRODUCT SPEC and then just look down you'll see BANDWIDTH 900/1800 it means the phone will work in asia and europe but not in the u.s. we are using 1900mhz here. my advise is if you know somebody want to swap, swap that phone, or if you know somebody from asia try to sell it to them, or sell it to ebay but put only works in asia and europe 900/1800mhz to save your butt. take care now.

    you cannot go higher on that phone. first the battery, if the battery go first where you gonna get it? that's not like a nokia, samsung, ericson, motorola that if you need batt just go to your local cell phone shop. second is charger! so if you selling this to ebay mention all this thing and put AS IS.

    so how much do u think i could get for it? is their anyway possible i can make this phone work here, changing the frequency, is that even a possibility?

    and another question what phone in the us can i get that has the same features as this one, the crystal clear pictures it takes from the 5x zoom digital camera, and the crisp crystal clear "HD" screen it has, etc? i was thinking the RAZR from cingular might be similar? or is the RAZR a lesser phone than this one
