Hello everyone!

I am using my unlocked Verizon 8830 on TashiCell - a GSM network in Bhutan.

Everything seems to work fine, except GSM service calls. For example, *770# is supposed to send back a SMS with my balance, but instead I get a recorded message "Your call cannot be completed at this time", as if the phone is actually trying to call that number instead of making a service call.

Any clue?

Thanks a zillion!

It has to do with the was gsm networks work. Because its technically a cdma phone with gsm calling, it won't work
