I'm tired of US getting the shaft.

Why everyone gets the good phones first never ceases to amaze me. Why do the socialists need this kind of phone? Why not make sure the capitalists with lots of money and gadget envy get what they want?

Why not just make every phone a world phone and leave it at that?

Now there's a concept.

Motorola has done this on many models
SE is starting this with a couple,

Where is Nokia with the Quad-Band?
Or a better question...

Why can't the US use the world standard frequencies?

WCDMA phone are great, but will we ever see a QuandBand GSM with DualBand WCMDA? unlikely

The reason why the us gets shafted is because of market. Every person in the us is looking for the best phone for free. We are too cheap to buy any phone out right.. Everyone comes in a store asking and looking for a razr but noone ever purchases it after hearing about the price.

WCDMA phone are great, but will we ever see a QuandBand GSM with DualBand WCMDA?.. To answer your question the nokia 6630 does just that

The 6630 is triband GSM and WCDMA 2100, as well as the 6680 and the N series phones.

Thats cause the Razr sucks, id be willing to pay good money for a good phone but not good money just becasue the phone is made well, every phone should be made well.

SE has not even announced a quad-band GSM phone, at least Nokia has the 6270 now.

Well, according to the Nokia USA website, the Nokia N90 will be available in the U.S. eventually. Smile

Like someone already stated, people in the US are cheaper than people elsewhere. They're willing to pay top dollar for a phone while most people here are more interested in seeing how cheap they can make that.

However, that ties into something else. In Europe and Asia, it's the manufacturers who are in charge. Here, they have to succumb to the whims of first the FCC and then the carriers. What that means is that if a phone were available for release on Jan 1st in both Europe and the US, there's a good chance that in Europe the phone would be on shelves by Jan 5th. In the US, the FCC would take a couple of months to approve it, then a carrier would spend a couple of months trying to figure out if it is worth them picking up.
