Hey people, need some help with a phone i just purchased from TradeMe.

It's a brand new Motorola v3xx, however it's an imported one that is branded AT&T.

I'm having issues with receiption; the signil always seems to drop out to emergency only or no service.

I've setup internet on the device but was wondering if there was anything else i needed to do? All settings for network etc are set to automatic.

The trademe listing of the phone is below:

What bands does the handset support?

If its from the US might support GSM850 /GSM1800 and you will only get coverage from Vodafone NZ GSM 1800 capacity sites

You can manually select each band but it's currently set to automatic.

Same issues....

This is my fault, i shouldn't have purchased from trademe. There is no way i'll get my money back.... even though it was advertised as a 3g phone and the guy said it will work perfectly in nz.

Oh well, i'll just bite the bullet i think and buy another one.
