Nokia Asha 200 - No signal in the USA

Nokia Asha 200 - No signal in the USA

Hello,

 

I bought a dual SIM Nokia 200 (also called the Nokia Asha 200) in the Philippines so I could use it in the U.S. to call and text back to the Philippines.

 

It worked fine when I was there with all 3 SIM cards - Smart, Sun and Globe..... I activated international roaming before I left the Philippines.

 

Upon arriving in the U.S. I have no signal at all.... no bars.

 

Does anyone know what the problem could be?

 

As far as I know it's a GSM phone ( and we also use GSM here too.

Also I tried to reset the phone. I never set a password/pass code for it and the default pass code 12345 doesn't work.

The reason is your Phone can work with GSM Frequencies 900 / 1800 MHz as mentioned here ... Whereas the GSM Frequencies in the USA are 850 / 1900 as mentioned here ...

I also have nokia asia 200, and same issue as explained above. Is there any way we can make this phone work in the US? will the carrier ( in my case At&t) be able to do anything about this?

Re: Nokia Asha 200 - No signal

Have you confirmed that its not a Network issue ? Can you try another SIM (you may borrow from your friends / family members) to confirm if they work fine. If they do, then get your SIM replaced thru' your Operator. Most Operator will do it for Free..
