SK17 i - NETWORK PROBLEM

Hi all.

I need your help. I bought a sk17i, that i have understood, it works on

GSM 850

GSM 900

GSM 1800

GSM 1900

HSPDA 900 

HSPDA 2100

I can use my cellphone on gsm network, but in my country, The network used for 3g( UMTS and HSPA+) is 1900.

I want to know if there is any way to change the cellphone frecuency, so that works on my country. I dont know if this is about hardware only, or maybe i can resolve with a software mod

Please help me.

Thanks..

Unfortunately there is no way to change the frequency on the handset as this is entirely based on hardware.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: SK17 i - NETWORK PROBLEM

Ok thanks for the quick response . So, Can you confirm that i can use xperia SK17a on HSPA 850Mhz and 1900? If that is correct, i think i will be changing my cellphone for the correct version.

Could you bring me a list with the diferent packages of Xperia mini pro with the diferent frecuencys? so that i can select the correct version to my country
