To Sammy 🙄

I am not trying to be mean but you should read before posting. Sprint is a cdma carrier and
"This smartphone runs Windows Mobile 6.1 and has quad-band GSM/EDGE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios on board." quoted right from the article.
This will go to a gsm carrier like at&t or t mobile. i hope that it will go with at&t seeing that is my carrier.

actually, it is very easy for a manufaturer to change the chip in a device...hence why you see many phones on both GSM and CDMA carriers. Moto, Samsung and HTC do this all the time. not hard to do at all...and most likely going to happen, as this type of a device fits in with the NEXTEL market great.

Well since it says the phone has VoIP capabilities plus gsm...my guess would be t-mobile.

I have tmobile! 😛

I find this ironic sense I work for Verizon not reading up on the phone before I suggested it... 😲 However, it does look like a phone Sprint would have.

Motorola has introduced plenty of phones like this, and has a strong (but small) industrial market cornered when it comes to industrial telecom. In almost all cases, these devices are sold entirely separate from service, and in many cases will never have a SIM card used in them at all.

As to the concept of "simply" "switching a chip"(to go from CDMA to GSM) - that's ludicrous. Phone makers will often design similar models that will look nearly identical on the outside, but the design tolerances involved with cell phones and the particulars of the radio & chip requirements for the differing technologies means it's anything but "simple" to change the network technology.

Yeah, if it were that easy, Nokia would have released their entire N and E lines with VZW or Sprint by now.
