OK, cool, then we're on the same page here. I don't want a quad-band phone - I just suspected that it might be easier and more cost effective to switch to it rather than to make two separate models with different bands. My whole point is that we do use 850/1900 in the US, we are not a trivial market and we should be seeing cutting-edge handsets made availble in the US - that combined, Cingular and ATTWS should have enough clout with handset manufacturers to cause this to happen - and we're not. I couldn't care less about 900/1800 - all I care about is GSM 850/1900, GPRS and EDGE. When I see handsets like the 6600, SX1, Sendo, MPx200, etc. etc. and know that I can't use them because I choose Cingular in MA and it's 850, it cheeses me off. I'll be relocating to SE Florida in the not too distant future - again, 850 for Cingular. No need to discuss the quad-band issue - unless you're a frequent world-traveler, which I'm not, it's academic.
OK, I'm done now.
