Help! Sprint TP2 sim unlocked on Tmobile

I have a question about tmobile service on a sim unlocked Sprint TP2. A few days ago, I gave my GF a Sprint TP2 after I paid to get the sim unlocked. Anyways, tmobile worked, but in certain areas like near her work, she couldnít get service, so no calls or texts whatsoever, but when she gets home the tmobile service is working again.

Is there a reason she might have no service in some areas? I setup the phone to only use GSM service and I did manual settings and selected Tmobile. Do you guys think maybe tmobile might have a different voice band in different locations that the Sprint TP2 canít pick up and thatís the reason she gets no service? She only wants the phone for talk and text and doesnít need the data.

No, when she uses her regular old cheapo phone, it works fine. I think maybe its the bands that the TP2 can't pick up.

I think your right about that one, I'm gonna have her try it out tomorrow at work, I guess the auto setting doesn't work well and manual is the only way.
