having trouble with this phone... gumagana pa siya nung nasa Pilipinas pa ako... pagdating ko dito sa US, no service yung sim ko. nareport ko na po sa globe yung tungkol sa roaming, sabi nila, activated na daw yung roaming, pero wala parin akong signal.

tinry ko na yung sinuggest nila na "manual activation" Settings --> Wireless & networks --> Mobile Networks --> Network Mode --> Auto Mode... no service parin.

tapos tinry ko rin yung, Settings --> Wireless & networks --> Mobile Networks --> Network operators... "error while searching for networks" palagi... 1 week na na ganun.

Need help. Thanks.

Just got mine. It's lite and sleek. I just love that it's dual sim since I use both Smart and Globe. Pretty cool! Fast and very responsive!
But I'm selling it only because I want a front and back camera. Any takers for 4,400? Comes with the 4gig micro SD that was given to me. Haven't really downloaded anything yet. Brand new!!! :)
