phone compatability

I use Cingular GSM service. I don't like most of their phones, and Cingular's phones all seem to use a frequency of 850. Does anyone know if I can use other gsm phones (which arent 850) with my service? I know they have to be unlocked. But would it even work?

Frequency questions...

As I understand it 800/850 are really the same band in the US (or is it all of North America?), and that this band is currently AMPS only but is switching over to GSM.

900 GSM and 1800 GSM are what the rest of the world uses.

And 1800 is what the US (N.A.?) has been using for digital mobile service.

Is all of the above correct, and if not will someone please enlighten me?
Thanks in advance!

color screen push to talk with Verizon

I am currently with Cingular....and I want to switch to Verizon as soon as the law goes into affect on 11/24 (so I can keep my #).
I definitely want push to talk....but the only push to talk phone that Verizon has...doesn't even have a color screen.

Does anyone know when and if Verizon is planning on putting out a color screen push-to talk phone??

I am a singular/motorola fan but if the T725 (EDGE) phone is going to be constructed as cheap looking as the T720, i think i will go for the V600 no FM but thats ok.

"Unavailable Calls"

In the last two weeks I have received numerous calls from "unavailable". The calls will remain open with silence until I hang up. Verizon's official position is that there is nothing they can do to identify the caller. I really don't care who is doing this, but feel there must be a dept. that can contact the caller and ask them to stop. Anyone know how to cut through red tape on this one? I have recent data on exactly when the calls occurred.

Question about EDGE

Edge is defined in the PhoneScoop glossary as:

--------------------------------------------- -

(Enhanced Data for Global Evolution)

An upgrade for GSM/GPRS networks that triples data speeds over standard GPRS.

Because it is based on existing GSM technology, EDGE is a smooth upgrade for GSM network operators. It also works within existing spectrum, making it ideal for countries without dedicated 3G spectrum, such as the US.

--------------------------------------------- -

Does that mean it will work with current GPRS client phones?

PS Rich if you see this "exsiting" is spelled wrong in the original article. And I love the spell checker in the new forums!!
