I have to ask why? One thier phones are bilingual however its still a japanese phone and some things you need to be able to read japanesse. two their phones are not that impressive. Trust me I am in Japan right nw. Nothing impressive at all. Call quality is a little better on WCDMA then GSM in my opionion. But thats it. Thier data is fast depending were you live. Toyko is like 1.5 megs a sec for 3g. And here at fuji its like 200kbs for 3g. Yes they will work in the states as softbank and AU have roaming agrements with cingular. But again why? Also I will check but I believe all the wcdma phones sold here are locked to a specific carrier.
