    A friend of mine just came back from Thailand with a "TCL 650" phone, assuming that it would work in North America. After fiddling with it for a while - surprise - it doesn't work. I don't know much about why it wouldn't work - something about 900 MHz vs 1900? Can anyone shed some light on why this won't work or whether there is any way to make it work?

    Thanks in advance!

    GSM phones run certain frequencies...overseas they use mostly 900-1800mhz where as here in the states at&t runs 850mhz and 1900. If the phone has all frequencies, it would work here, otherwise it is not compatible with our GSM networks. (I believe T-mo runs 850 and 1700?)
