Thats not true, Cingular as of now has EDGE, but in a few months T-Mobile will launch EDGE. If you look at the Freqencies for the V635 it has 900/1800/1900 MHz on it. Cingular doesn't use 900, they use 850MHz. If Cingular gets that phone, it will have to say 850/1800/1900M MHz on the phone. So, my guesss this will be a phone for T-Mobile to support their EDGE launch. The phone is suppose to come out in a few months.
