Default Using 3G sim card with EDGE only phones?

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, im not sure where else to put this . I looked for a "other" sub-forum but there isnt one, and i dont know where else i could ask this question and get a good answer, so i apoligize.


I recently purchased a LG A7110 for my girlfriend. This phone was made right before the new 3G network took off and only supports EDGE network from what i have found. Well it seems that the phone isnt getting good service and im curious if it is because we both have the new 3G sim cards? Do we need an older sim for this phone to work properly, or should it work with out a problem?

Again, i apoligize, if someone will give me an answer quickly, i would not mind at all for this to be deleted. I just have no other forum to ask such a question. Thanks guys.

the device will work properly on the 3g SIM cards. The service issues that you have found are not necessarily linked to the SIM, could be the device.
