    Exclamation unlocked samsung galaxy s2 got stuck on T-mobile EDGE data network

    i have bought this unlocked phone for about 550$, but internet is stuck on edge(not even 2g) which is incredibly slow.Please help me solve this

    I have searched internet but just a few ppl has the same problem with unlocked samsung galaxy S2 and tmobile.That made me think that there might be a solution like changing the Tmobile sim card(i dont know if there is only one type of sim card), entering an unlock code provided by tmobile, or going to a samsung maintenance service and let them fix it or anyother? I have updated to the new firmware but did no effect.I cant understand how such a big company like samsungs' cutting edge new phone comes out of the factory with unsupporting the USAs one(Tmobile) of the 2(Tmobile,ATT) GSM networks data frequency..There must be a solution.I had called samsung customer service but the guy on the phone did not even know the problem.

    I have found these two relevant pages but that should not necesarrily mean that there is no way because its what the poster thinks..Maybe someone can help?

    I'm curious why you didn't buy T-mobile's version of the phone. I have it, with the larger 4.5" screen and 4G (I know, it's not real 4G) I've been very happy with it. I get 15-20 mbps download speeds, which are fantastic. The T-mobile version has 4 buttons on the bottom instead of the trackball, but I find it quite acceptable.

    I too have the same problem, but I knew of this issue beforehand. The Galaxy S II is only a quadband phone and lacks access to the frequency that T-Mobile uses for 3G/4G (Need a pentaband phone).

    However, if you wait, T-Mobile is supposed to be rolling out its 1900MHz frequency network which will allow support for 3G on the Galaxy S II GT-I9100--it's already active in some locations: http://bit.ly/v24DkQ
