Will an old Nokia 1616-2c work in Europe?

    Hi,

     

    I have an old Nokia 1616-2c (a "feature phone") that I bought in the US. It is badged for T-Mobile, but no longer locked to the T-Mobile network. Should it work in Europe? I have found conflicting information, including a suggestion (on Wikipedia) that the hardware doesn't support the European GSM frequency bands. If I try to use manual network selection in Europe, the phone says "no networks found". If this is genuinely a hardware limitation, then I guess I'm out of luck. If it's a software/configuration issue, then I'm all ears for suggestions.

     

    Thanks for any help!
