  1. Sticky: Once unlocked, it's forever unlocked. Well,...

    Once unlocked, it's forever unlocked. Well, that's the general rule of thumb anyway. There are some exceptions, and I'll cite two, but these shouldn't happen to you if you bought an unlocked phone:...
  2. Sticky: Current 7-Eleven phones are all dual band...

    Current 7-Eleven phones are all dual band (850+1900MHz) and thus are only useful for North and South Americas. To get true worldwide service, you'll need a quadband GSM phone plus something that...
  3. Sticky: Yes, all unlocked phones will work with...

    Yes, all unlocked phones will work with SpeakOut... as per my previous post.

    Cingular compatible? Only for the US SpeakOut service. It's Rogers-locked phones here in Canada. (also per my...
  4. Sticky: This is correct. So, in summary: 7-11 SIM +...

    This is correct. So, in summary:

    7-11 SIM + unlocked phone = OK
    7-11 SIM + Rogers locked phone = OK
    7-11 SIM + Fido locked phone = Not OK

    Somebody please sticky this! :)
  5. Sticky: There's no need to say sorry! :) Anyway, the 7-11...

    There's no need to say sorry! :) Anyway, the 7-11 network, Fido network and Rogers network are all one and the same; they all have the same towers. The differentiation is just in the coverage area...
  6. Sticky: Have you looked in the battery bay beneath the...

    Have you looked in the battery bay beneath the battery? There should be a model number somewhere. Or, you can press *#0000# and you'll see the model number. As an example, on my 1100b, it shows:

  7. Sticky: Your SIM looks right... the SpeakOut SIM I had...

    Your SIM looks right... the SpeakOut SIM I had (which I sold off) was not marked at all. Interestingly it was already inserted into the phone's SIM slot, so there was no SIM holder at all. So did...
  8. Sticky: Ha ha ha... how true! :) It seems to me that not...

    Ha ha ha... how true! :) It seems to me that not too many people in the general public knows what a SIM is and what the obvious merits are... this continent is indeed quite backwards when it comes...
  9. Sticky: This seems like your SIM was never programmed. ...

    This seems like your SIM was never programmed. Thus, you probably gotta call CS and ask them to assign a number. To clue them in, make sure you give a proper area code since they don't seem to have...
  10. Sticky: The SIM is correct - showing that it's for the...

    The SIM is correct - showing that it's for the Rogers network (302-720), but SIM registration failed usually means the SIM is inactive (my dead SIMs show that upon powering up)... in your case either...
  11. Sticky: Practically they're a Fido MVNO due to coverage...

    Practically they're a Fido MVNO due to coverage area, but technically they're a Rogers MVNO based on SIM card serial numbers and compatibility (re: the SIM can work in a Rogers-locked phone).

    I...
  12. Sticky: Just curious... would giving them a Fido number...

    Just curious... would giving them a Fido number do anything for you? IIRC, the 7-11 phone numbers come from Rogers allocations...

    According to http://www.cnac.ca/ac403.htm I got a Rogers number...
  13. Sticky: It's not surprising it shows "Rogers" on a non...

    It's not surprising it shows "Rogers" on a non 7-11 phone; as I mentioned before the SIM card serial number (IMSI) is a Rogers serial and probably without 7-11 firmware "SpeakOut" won't show. ...
  14. Sticky: ^^^ Proof that there is no free lunch (er, free...

    ^^^ Proof that there is no free lunch (er, free SIM)!! Still better than a $25 SIM with nothing on it though.
  15. Sticky: Absolutely. That's the beauty of GSM, and that's...

    Absolutely. That's the beauty of GSM, and that's why I would never go to CDMA (Telus, Bell, VM, PC, etc.) because of the lack of flexibility (I mean, stuck to one phone)... unless if some sort of...
  16. Sticky: Technically there is no need to send in your...

    Technically there is no need to send in your IMEI. You can always transfer your SIM to another unlocked phone or any 7-11 or Rogers-locked phone. 7-11 is a MVNO, so I don't think they have the...
  17. Sticky: Once again, the Rogers and Fido GSM networks are...

    Once again, the Rogers and Fido GSM networks are now one and the same - they use the same towers and thus whether reception is good at a certain area is now dependent on the phone you're using and...
  18. Sticky: Another update...

    I bought the 1100 after selling my 6010 for a pretty decent price. It's a wonderfully functional and simple phone.

    ANOTHER UPDATE: The 7-Eleven SIM works with a locked Rogers phone! Possible...
  19. Sticky: Hey, if you want the SIM, I can buy the phone and...

    Hey, if you want the SIM, I can buy the phone and send you the SIM, and you can just pay me for the cost of the SIM. Work it out via PM if you want.
  20. Sticky: Just curious... is your i930 working on MiKE? I...

    Just curious... is your i930 working on MiKE? I am a GSM man, so I don't have much of an idea about iDEN.
  21. Sticky: Somebody did say that calling 7-11 CS is the...

    Somebody did say that calling 7-11 CS is the method to get a SIM card only.
  22. Sticky: Yes, there is no Fido network anymore, but there...

    Yes, there is no Fido network anymore, but there is still a differentiation between the original Fido footprint and the "extended coverage" footprint. "Fido footprint" can be defined as service...

    Voice dialing is the single most-used feature when I use the phone. I guess the 1100 is not an option for me then.
  24. Sticky: Does this phone have voice dialing?

    Does this phone have voice dialing?
  25. Sticky: Alright! :2thumbs: While it's not hard to...

    Alright! :2thumbs: While it's not hard to unlock a Nokia, 7-11 does present a good way to get a cheap and durable backup phone - the 1100. So, did you get the 1100 or the 3120? I'm thinking of...
