    Angry Bought an 8890 two days ago...

    ...well now my phone is dead. I made a call last night and after I ended, the signal meter dropped to nothing, AT&T wireless disappeared and I haven't been able to get it back since. I a manual scan and no service found, not even Cingular which works good where I live. Don't have this problem with my 8390 though. Grr, this is turning out to be the worst $300 I've ever spent. Is there anything I can do or is my phone toast?

    sorry to hear that...the nearest service centre maybe??

    if it's really dead and can't be repaired, disassemble and sell the parts...or do a home project to fit your 8390 into the casing...sicne u have a dud anyway...

    The nearest service center can't do anything either. I thought about maybe trying to get it unlocked again then doing a factory reset with the cable and software. It might be easier for me to exchange it though.

    if you exchange it and the antenna receives no signal... you are a bad seller (not to mention a bad person ) --- have they diagnosed the problem or did they just say "sorry nothing we can do" ?

    the answer is quite simple. Take it or have it shipped to Nokia and spend some money to have it repaired. They offer this service in Canada and I had no problem dropping $200.00 to get my phone fixed.
