Hello to all,
Just wanted a bit of advice on bringing my mobile back to Canada,
Is it easy to get hooked up with a service provider? Is it feasible to bring it back? I was really hoping to avoid the B.S. of signing a contract/plan in Ontario.
If anybody has any advice on what steps I should take I would love to hear it!
Thanks in advance
I doubt it. I was told that they`re adapted for a whole other kind of system than the sim cards in the United States, but I`m not sure about Canada. Why don`t you call a phone company in North America and get their advice? Either way, if you can`t get a good price for your phone, it`s worth a try back there.
more time for wastin'
I believe Lotuslevi is right. How about checking out their web sites - Rogers and Bell Mobility should have an option in which you e-mail them with questions like that.
If you post the model and make of your mobile, I'll let you know if it'll work in Canada. You need a phone that works on 1900MHz. Not all phones sold in Thailand will work on that frequency, though if you have anything slightly modern, it will.
Naboo the phone is a Nokia n72, really hoping I can buy a SIm there and just by pre-paid phone cards!
Thanks so much for your help!!
buy not by....... thanks again

Nokia N72 is OK for Canada as long as there's no sim lock on it, which Thailand doesn't seem to do or know anything about from memory. Basically if you can put an AIS sim in and a True (I think thats the other network...) and if they both work you're fine.
In Canada, just get yourself whatever sim you want. GPRS settings will need changing but customer services will send them to you.
When transporting the device use bubble wrap and many thick strong rubber bands. Then wrap in tissue and place in an "oh my kitty" bag with a strong draw string. Place adhesive tape on the outside with your important information in English, French and Thai.
