    Hey Guys,
    I was wondering if Cingular GSM's would work on the island and also do i need to unlock it here in US?

    If you fail at AUC, SGU, or Ross why not transfer to SMU, if you fail at SMU, why not try another SMU.

    I bought an unlocked silver motorola razr V3 for 190. Now a sweet phone like that isn't necessary but I personally would rather pay 190 for a sweet phone than 100 for an aweful phone on the island. The phone is available through cingular so I guess you can consider it a cingular GSM phone and it will work on the island. I did a lot of research on this and all quad band phones and all tri band phones with the 900 frequency will work on the island. Only problem is most new phones available in the US don't have the 900 frequency...

    Where could you get it unlocked? I have my old cingular phone with me and I am considering using it again (I currently have a land line instead).

    So if my phone does not support 900 frequency, it would not work on the island?
