It must be expensive, but would be the best hello kitty's phone available now.
Still wondering why Nokia doesn't sell it in your country before the Chrismas season this year.

Okwap is a Taiwanese phone company and their kitty's phone uses GMS standard. If I remember correctly, you cannot use GMS phone in Japan, but you can in your country.

Since you started a new topic about a kitty phone, I thought you wanted i516 or A267 30th anniversary Hello Kitty models, right?

I guess that i516 and A267 is mainly for Taiwanese or Chinese users, so you should be careful that nobody would kindly support you even when the phone will be out of order. Many people here would be glad to help you about Japan related issues, but it would be hard to get info upon Taiwan or China here.

I don't intend to play a joke on you, but how about searching English manuals (PDF files) for i516 and A267 in the following okwap site for your first step?

I don't know very much about GSM1900 coverage in your country, but J carrier, docomo offers us their roaming service using GSM1900 networks of T-mobile and AT&T in your country. I think their maps would be of your help.

Needless to say, you should make your own double check on the GSM1900 coverage in your town. And after my quick check on the ebay, some people are saying that their kitty phones are "unlocked", but nobody tells that the phone is 100% sim lock free.

Good luck

Thanks for the map 2004/12/20 23:10
I was so impressed by the number of local carriers in US.

The kitty phones she wants are used only in the GSM1900 network in her country, and there are some US carriers using GSM850/1900. So it might be possible that her town is covered by GSM1900 network, but by GSM850 around her house.

Maybe she left for Taiwan guide com, if any...

Hello Kitty i516 2005/3/3 03:38
It's a tri-band phone, so check with your local phone operator if your SIM card complies to a tri-band phone. It should be compatible.

GSM, 1900, etc 2005/5/10 15:09
Some context RE: the number of GSM carriers in the U.S.

Many of those carriers are not nation-wide, but rather regional or only one state (but many of those also have roaming agreements with their neighbors).

Cingular/Verizon and T-Mobile are the major nationwide GSM carriers in the U.S.

Also, the 850 band is not in widespread use here in the U.S... we've adjusted to only having the 1900 band for so long, that 850 is mostly only being used in areas that 1900 already exists, so that carriers who were 'locked out' of a market because of limited bandwith availablility could enter it.

So a 1900 Mhx phone should be able to get you just about anywhere you want to go, especially in any area even moderately populated.

Hope this helps!

world phone-Hello kitty i516 okway 2005/7/13 22:09
hello kitty cell phones can not always be used around the world but one can the Okwap i516 hello kitty cell phone. It is a triband phone with all sorts of cool features ie PDA 1M camera and video clips, calorie calculator and much much more. I am selling mine on ebay because i need the money for college. every little bit helps. I didnt even use it except for an alarm I was too busy getting all my college stuff together and taking care of my job and my aunt being sick. Anywho if you know anyone who might be interested....http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=64355&item=5788555729&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW
