    Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I should be able to get service without 3G, right? I just got this phone two days ago, so I'd be horribly sad if I already had to take it back. I tried resetting the network, but that did diddly squat. :/ I really hope it's a simple fix..Thank you!

    um what?????

    if the network youre connecting to has EDGE fallback (GSM) or 1XRTT (CDMA), then it should be able to connect to those 2G networks if 3G isnt available. however some networks around the world may not revert to EDGE if they are blanketed in 3G and turned off EDGE use.
