I've just bought a 3.0 V6 166 which is unquestionably one of the nicest cars I've owned, what an engine..

Can anyone tell me why the GSM phone system doesn't accept SIM cards from Orange? Am I doing something wrong?
Is it possible to get this converted?

Hi. Tim,

I think that you will find that the phone in the ICS is 900 htz ie voda & o2
Orange & T mobile are 1800htz. Time to buy a pre-pay sim card i think.

Its the phone thats not dual band not the sim card. Of course most portable handsets are tri-band. The phone in the ICS is 800htz only.

I know the phone on the 166 works on the 900 band but now all services in Europe are dual, which means if you don't have 900 we'll get 1800 or, the other way around.
There's no excuse, especially 'cause 900 still has a better range.
So what would be the problem? :confused:
