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!
According to GSMarena.com, the 1616 (US version) is dual band 850/1900. It will not work in Europe.
OK, thanks. I had actually found that site before posting my question, but did not notice the little Expand/Collapse widget on the GSM info - d'oh!
