What, no Bluetooth?
Verizon is too slow to adopt technology, they just finally came out w/ Bluetooth this summer (a friend has that phone and its BT is crippled...not ideal).
As I travel a lot to Europe I'd be real interested in this phone but w/out BT in this day and age it doesn't deserve a look. Sorry Verizon, when my contract's up in November, I'm looking around.
Also, its not listed on the VZW site yet.
