For Sale: brand new GSM Phone Nokia 8801

Hi people,
I'm selling a brand new Nokia 8801 (not 8800). It's untouched and the box comes with desktop charger, two batteries, ear piece, home charger, pouch and cd/manual. Everything in original box. With 8801, you'll be able to get US warranty thru Nokia. Asking $600USD shipped OBO.

Please check my feedback on eBay under dk_ocean8 for reference. I have 268 feedbacks on it. =) Feel free to send me email or PM for offers. I'm in Los Angeles area. Thx.

OBT

Hi,
It's triband in 850/1800/1900. This is the North America version of Nokia 8800 so they implemented 850 in there instead of 900. For US use, you get better reception with 8801 because of the 850 capability.

If you want the triband 900/1800/1900, I have that for sale too, but that one is slightly used (still in perfect condition) and it's the same price since 8800 is a slightly more expensive.

Not to rain on your parade in any way shape or form, but a little piece of info I came across since we are on the subject was that Cingular/T-mobile which share towers I hear, are switching back to the 900 mhz tower on top of 1800 and 1900. Some 850 towers were swapped out for 900 back in March sometime due to the underwhelming availability of 850 equipped phones produced by manufacturers. I don't know what areas this affects besides some of OC and LA.

Hi.. Thanks for the post. Where did you get that info? I would like to read more about it as it'll change our cell stores' selling strategy. (I'm in the cell phone business and never heard of it from either the cingular nor tmobile people).

I have a few questions for you if your statement was accurate: what do you mean by "switching back" to 900? Cingular/Tmobile never had 900 network implemented. Cingular was primarily 1900 until a few years ago where they started implementing 850 towers. Tmobile shared some of the 1900 towers with Cingular.

I'm not 100% sure about the info below, but this is what I heard: Cingular sold their old towers to Tmobile (1900 ones) and then Cingular took over AT&T's 1900 tower when they merged.

Band 900 and 1800 were never used in North America and were only used in other regions.

ya where did you get your info. For such a switch to occur cingular couldn't just switch frequencies that means lots of people would just loose there service and want new phones cause not all phones are quad-band.

You are right. My information was coming from a bad source (someone at a phone store who was probably trying to make a sale on a euro/asian phone). I was expressing my concerns of using a 900/1800/1900 tri band phone from europe/asia and he told me that in March, Cingular changed some of their towers to 900 mhz. This is not true because I think the research I did on Howardforums is much more credible than a statement from one salesperson. The general consensus is that Cingular operated on mainly 1900, but then picked up the 850 band when they acquired AT&T. This I believe to be true because the 8890 Nokia they used to sell over 5 yrs ago was only a 900/1900 band phone and it worked like a dream. Now Cingular phones are either triband at 850/1800/1900 or quad which included the 900 band. USA works on only 850 and 1900. T-mobile is said to be strictly 1900, so you can use a euro/asia phone on Tmobile with no problem, but if you have that kind of phone on Cingular, you are screwing yourself out of 850 mhz towers. I don't know how many there are and how often a phone picks up this signal, but you certainly won't be getting service in parking garages and inside big buildings because the 850 mhz band is able to penetrate through to these areas, whereas the 1900 band is better out in the open. Hope that clears some things up. I may still be wrong because everything I know, I know from reading what countless others have discussed. It's funny, I noticed that the only people who ever told me that 900/1900 would work just fine on cingular are those who would gain by selling me a phone. Everyone else on howardforums says that it is a very bad idea to get a phone on cingular that does not have the 850 band.

by the way, your auction ended...good stuff.
