help - no 3g and can't do contacts in main menu

ok, i got a e71 from hong kong...
it got on the 3g netowrk there ok, but when i take it back to US, i can only get EDGE...if i switch off dual mode to UMTS only, i get no network at all...

any ideas?

also, i read many times, that at the main home screen, i can just start typing a contacts name, and it will find it...it does not do that for me for some reason...
i can type in "john" which equals to "#o69" and it won't find john...

something missing or that's not possible?


thanks for all the help!

For 3G, the US has two 3G networks: AT&T uses UMTS 850/1900 while T-Mobile uses AWS 1700/2100.

Of all the E71 variants out there, only the 71-2 (NAM) version will work with 3G in the US and only on the AT&T network.

I am not sure what is wrong with your contacts.

ah, thanks...

as for the contacts "smart dialing" a little more digging via google (once i figure out what it's called) reveals that nokia left that out for the asian model phone for some reason : (
