    Hi All,
    I am contemplating purchasing an unlocked 6310i phone for future use. I have a couple of questions. Can this phone be used on ATT or will they not activate it because it isn't locked? Also, the same question applies for Cingular? Finally, are any of the 3 frequencies it uses in the 800-900 range for any american carriers?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Yes, both ATT and Cingular can sell you a SIM for service, without a new phone. Some salesmen may not know this (or really want the handset commission).

    In the US and Canada, the Nokia 6310i will operate on 1900 MHz only--the 900 and 1800 MHz bands are for use abroad. You wouldn't have the 800 (850) MHz band for complete Cingular operation, and future ATT use.

    A phone with 800(850)/1800/1900 MHz bands would be a better choice for primarily North American use, and occasional travel abroad. The Nokia 6200 is one such phone.

    COtech,

    Thanks for the info. My wife just picked up a Nikia 6200 (for Cingular) and absolutely loves it! I still want to go with either the 6310i or the 6340i as I really like the form factor. I am in the central Mass area and the 1900 frequency seems to work well here from ATTWS. Still not sure which phone I'll wind up with but for now, I still have my blackberry (which absolutely rocks... but I have to have some variety!).

    Thanks again,
    Greg
