Phone Update

Well.. my new phone got here. Now, remember that I had called Cingular and they said that they would support any tri-band phone, even if I bought it from someone else.

Well, guess what. My tri-band phone won't work IN OREGON. Pretty much anywhere else in the country, or with a different carrier...

see... the frequencies in use internationally are 850/900/1800/1900
My phone supports 900/1800/1900
My old phone supported 850/1800/1900
Cingular supports 850/1900
Cingular in Oregon ONLY supports 850

I think we are going to drop Cingular over this. There are 4 frequencies in the spec -- and they normally support 2 of them... except in Oregon... except Oregon? WTF? Fuck Cingular and their "we only use 1 frequency in Oregon" bs.
