Quite simply, if you dont live on the western half of the US, then analog is not something you truely need. What sets VZW apart from other carriers is technology. CDMA is utilized by both Sprint and VZW. However, Sprint can only offer 1900Mhz PCS whereas VZW still offers, even in digital only phones, both 800Mhz and 1900Mhz digital. therby providing a still larger coverage area. Just so you know, CDMA is the predominant technology here in the USA. In 5 years from now, there will no longer be any analog. Taking out the analog chipset from these phones allows for smaller and lighter handsets.
