    I had a SE t290 but it got waterdamaged... so instead of buying the same one, i bought a tri band unlocked phone from a store on ebay. SE t616. its cingular branded but unlocked. so i put my sim card in and everything went fine... except i dont have a network. the frequencies are 850/1800/1900 so i woul image it would work. is there a certian way i need to set everything up, install or maybe progeam something.. im not too sure..any help would be apriated.. thkns
