Somebody please help me! I have just gotten a used nokia 8260 off of ebay. The guy said that he had cingular service in hurst texas (76054) (tdma). This would work good, I live in macon Georgia, (31210) and also have cingular (tdma). I got the phone today and took it down to get it activated. The guy worked and worked on it but nothing worked. Something was bad. I couldn’t receive or make calls. I could call 611 (cingular tech support) however. I love the little phone but am mad about the activation. I talked to a tech support on 611 and he tried everything he could to get it to work. No luck. He said that maybe the guy I bought it from didn’t have cingular. I looked up the available service in this guy’s area and att&t was the only other tdma option. The guy will not respond to my emails. The tech support guy said that if cingular had issued the original owner the phone than that the phone was probably defective and I could probably get a new one for free, and that’s why it wont work here, but if the phone does not belong to cingular than I am just out of luck. The guy I bought if from will not answer his emails so is there any way of telling which company issued the phone? Maybe by the ESN number or the code on the back under the battery or something. I need help. What should I do with this phone that I cant use????
