    Since I dumped Cingular, I have a fully usable V551. Since it is a quad band phone, and it is unlocked, can or will the 800/850 band be used by the phone if needed with my T-Mobile service? Or has T-Mobile not yet opened up that band for roaming use yet in the L.A. area? I may be completely misunderstanding how this works, but those in the know, please advise... :confused:

    850 won't help you in LA, but TM is testing 850 in some areas (currently MS, AL I think) so it would work there.

    Even if T-Mobile dose not have any roaming on 850 in your area, you can still use the phone in case of a emergency. :)
