Dear all,

Mt dad has the aformentioned phone and is not using it (he is portuguese and finds it a challenge!) and gave it to me as a present. I have a three sim card that is in an LG 8120 (designed by the devil). the V600i is a 3G phone so i put my sim card into it and
am using it (so happy with it!). however i called three to seend me new settings for it (to set the wap mms etc) but they said they do not support this phone and should change back or they may cancel my contract if they detect i am using it! I was shocked.
how can they tell me what phone i can or cant use?
my question is, wil they know if i keep using it? ie does the sim card send out details of what phone i am using when i make a call or text?

i really like the phone and i am not going to throw it back at my dad.

thanks
