how can I pick a cell here using old SIM card from china phone
I have a cell phone bought from china (Ktouch trid band), it has intel roaming enabled. When I arrived in the U.S, I can not receive any network signal. All I want this phone is to receive short message from China (no phone call or send out message function needed). So I am looking for any U.S cell phone that if I swap my old SIM card over, it can receive the text from China. No smart phone is needed if I can use just non-smart one.
Spefic question are:
1. Should I buy any quad band cell phone will solve network signal problem?
2. Should I only buy pre-paid cell phone in order to avoid any monthly charge?
3. If the cell phone I bought here have chinese language option, does that guarantee my text message will show Chinese character properly?
4. If I need install chinese character, how easy it is to download or reconfig?
