    did you buy your phone from Tigo or did you buy an unlocked one off the internet?

    EDIT: go to options -> about and look at "3G Bands" and the numbers that follow, and compare them with your friends' phone. if they're not the same, then your phone is not compatible with Tigo's 3G network.

    Tigo is providing 3G on the 850Mhz band. If your phone is a T-Mobile unlocked then it cannot get that frequency. You need the 9700 with 3G bands 1,5,7,6 (AT&T unlocked version). It sounds like you have the 1,4,8 bands version. If that is the case then you are out of luck on 3G services. You have to be careful as there are two different hardware versions of the 9700 made with different 3G bands.
