Does anyone know if there is any kind of update released yet that allows a Three UK sim card to be used on N900?

In Italy 3 works good with N900, any chance that a italian N900 with italian 3 sim will work in uk?

if it works in italy, it will work in the uk as well i should think. as long as the sim is the same one.

Though obviously you'll incur international roaming charges for using an italian sim in the UK..

Luckly 3 Italy gives you the opportunity to use your contract in UK as well with no extra charges for data. So you think it should work in UK as well if it works in Italy??? It's not a problem of 3UK operator?

Are you sure they still do that? here they removed the "3 like home" when the reduced EU roaming charges were implemented. which is not long ago.

Re: Three UK sim and N900.. any update yet?

i see no reason why it wouldn't work.

either the phone works with the sim or it doesen't, has nothing to do with the network. the only reason there is an issue with 3 in general, is because in general...they use sims that dont work in the n900.

Re: Three UK sim and N900.. any update yet?

Unfortunately for 3 UK sims owners it seems that that bug was not fixed with this minor update. It is a shame for Nokia, they shuld care more about costumers! What we have here is just some minor fix, including icons in the application manager.

 

Anyway, thanks everyone for the answers, if the problem with 3 is not on the network but just on the sim cards then with my italian 3 card it should work fine in UK. Thanks again!

Just to confirm to you guys... It was a UK N900 from the Manchester Nokia store. And i was using a 3 UK sim card that is approximately one year old.

 

I hope that helps someone out there who maybe able to make a quick fix for this issue! I really want my "Mobile Computer!" LOL XD

Join the band wagon my friend! What makes it even worse Nokia have said NOTHING ON THE ISSUE as to why or when it is going to get fixed... Looking at the timescale it took for Nokia to even attempt fixing there N97 handset. I took mine back for a full refund. I think ill just put it in savings until they either fix the issue, or something else comes out that is equipped for my needs...

 

Nokia AGAIN a huge disappointment...

Re: Three UK sim and N900.. any update yet?

Todays update 2.2009.51-1 appears to have fixed the issue. Just checked with one of my 3 sims that was previously rejected
