Have you unlocked the phone to use on Rogers? Where did you get the unlock code - Cingular or one of the unlock companies? I didn't know there were codes available yet, since it is so new. It might not really be unlocked.
I can confirm that the unlock codes for the 8800 are available.
I have sold close to 500 of them already.
