Samsung SCH-A790 / SCH-A795 / IP-A790
does anyone know when this phones coming out and is this the best phone verizon would be offering???
would appreciate all the opinions i can get...
As for whether it'll be the best phone available at that time, who knows? It'll be the best for international travellers, since it'll work throughout much of the world; but it'll be less functional than a windows based smartphone for US based business consumers. This phone will likely be relatively expensive for personal consumers (a large part of the price will derive from the ability to roam internationally- something few customers will ever do).

This is a big deal to me because I'd want a single phone not only for voice calls, but also for data. The site above lists availability in December for 600 Euros - pretty expensive.
Although I'd have to agree. Of my calling plan i use maybe 1000 minutes a month TOTAL for voice and my text message usage is 4x that much. Hopefull they'll have an international phone w/ the capabilities of what their US network can support.
Also yes it will be expensive b/c of the feature that it has GSM in it.
Considering Vodafone owns 45% of Verizon Wireless, I don't think getting GSM roaming would be a problem...
I believe that Vodafone will want to sell this phone in Europe as well... Why would Vodafone pay roaming fees to a competitor in the USA when they can have their subscribers roam on Verizon & get 45% of the revenue flowing right into their own pocket? 😁
