Default Unlocked Pearl Question

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all, just a quick question. I bought a new unlocked Pearl and tried something the other day. I swapped my Rogers SIM for my Pay as you Go Cingular SIM, and all I got on the top right of the screen in red letters was SOS Silly detail, I was in Canada when I did it. Should I assume that as soon as I get in to the USA, with the Cingular SIM inserted, it will automatically detect it on Cingular's network? I have the setting set to Automatic in the Network Selection Mode. Any help/insight would help.

Thanks!

SOS means you can only make emergency calls.

I would imagine the cingular card will work fine when used on at&t's network in the US.

I doubt you can use the card in Canada.
