Hi Nick,

Thanks for the change in tone, for me it was more then welcome.
I have been to the USA with my FR and had no problem whatsoever in
connecting to the network, also the gprs worked just fine.
I did bought a USA sim card on ebay, just to cut the costs.
I traveled California, Nevada, Montanna, Sout Dakota and Colorado on the
T-Mobile network.

Kind regards,
