    I have both a Nokia 8390 and 8290. When I do a manual system search, I only see Cingular and AT&T. I know that T-Mobile is GSM, so why is it not showing up?

    In most of California T-Mobile uses Cingular's system. If you look at coverage maps of both carriers they are the same. When I tried T-Mobile and did the manual search, it came up with T-Mobile & ATT no Cingular.

    I see, that would make sense. Thanks for the reply.

    Well, Cingular and T-Mobile co-own a network in CA and NV. It was originally made by Cingular/PacBell though.
