Anybody wants it?
Unfortunately alot of phones don't support the 850mhz/2100 3g frequencies (850 being the most important) that the Spark/Skinny network uses. And the imei checker isnt always 100% accurate
This phone is from 2008, might be time for a new one perhaps?
Would you post the first 8 digits of the imei here? Ill see what it comes up with
PetAT: Yea, I actually bought a $8 bonous Credit and was going to switch my vodafone to Skinny. Unfortunately seems I cant unless I buy a new phone. :( I'm a technology dinosaur, got any suggestions? I *need* a Music Phone since I do a lot of out door activities & stuff and got dedicated earphones for running & hiking, hence why I kept my old 5800 express music for so long. I prefer Nokia but may take a HTC but not an Apple.
phones IME is 35201204
What does your "music phone" do that a regular phone doesn't?
Also curious as to why you wanted to move to Skinny?
PetAT: ok, might just stick to vodafone for now and later get the HTC one or HTC M8 (Bit expensive for a phone that is just for music, txt, calls and the odd snap of pictures) Thanks Guys :)
Dulouz: I went through exactly the same thing last week with my wives Nokia Express music. I'm already on Skinny and thought it would be good to be on the same network.
I went through the whole registration process and even received a confirmation text, so I thought sweet. Then the phone's coverage kept dropping out. This is after I had requested number porting. It was a few stressful minutes while I struggled to find a number for the technical team to cancel the number porting.
I was pretty surprised that the network didn't support the Nokia 5800. It was a good phone in its day.
