RE: Review - "Shame on you Motorola"
The phone sounded good until I heard there's no bluetooth. I understand VZW doesn't allow file transfers on Blouetooth, which may make the technology seem useless to anyone from other countries or used to GSM, but I rely on it for my headset.
There's a strike on my upgrade to my next phone. Other than that, it still seems like a good phone, the other features I don't use too often.
Now to answer one question:
"why is the cdma chip digital only?"
Last time I checked, VZW only offers all digital phones. I have yet to see a new Tri-mode phone in their stores, but who needs it when the network is so good without their old analog towers? Side's aren't they converting those towers to digital?

2. Can you change the background setting on the outside display on the phone?
(Can you change the M on the outside display when you close the phone?)
3. Does any one know the difference in main difference in the phone's ?
Other than the A790 does not have speaker and A840 does have a speaker. What else?
4. What's the quality of the pictures you take with the phone?
5. Has anyone had a chance to play with the A790 and what did you think about this compared to A840?
I've had mine and the phone keeps frying out on me!

Motorola A840 opinions wanted
I have a Motorola V710 that I bought when they first came out. I am planning on turning it in to Verizon under the lawsuit settlement. I would like to replace it with either a Motorola E815 or A840. I really don't need bluetooth and I do travel to Europe so I would like to get the A840. It appears that the E815 is a good phone but I have seen very little feedback regarding the A840. I would appreciate any user feedback on the A840 and any opinions on the E815 vs the A840 - I am aware of the difference in features - I would like to know about quality, reception, reliability etc.
Is it possible to browse HTTPS web pages
I need to check email trough Outlook Web Access.. I don't think this phone let you connect to IMAPS (secure imap). My company uses Microsoft Exchange server, and we have a the microsoft outlook web access interface to use when we are travelling.
Do you think it is possible to unlock the A840 for it to accept a sim card purchased in the UK?
It would be convenient to be able to travel with just one phone until gsm coverage improves in my area.
