Does this phone support EDGE?

I can see that the updated V500, the V551, supports EDGE but does the V620 support EDGE? They are part of the triplets family of Motorola phones (V300 / V500 / V600) so why would they update the V500 to support EDGE and not the V600?

If it doesn't support EDGE, is this something that can be changed with a FLEX file or updated firmware. In other words could the FLEX files or firmware from the V551 be put on the V600 or V620 to give it EDGE support?

i agree, i am aggravated at moto for this, i'm almost afraid to sell certain phones to customers in fear that a "new" version will be out soon...plus, the customer's don't like paying a couple hundred dollars for a phone only to find out it has been discontinued a couple months after it released (v600)....

Very true...It seems like I just got my V600 and now they already have an upgraded version. Wireless phones get outdated much faster than they did years ago because they weren't as many upgraded versions as now.

But that's the way it always is. Try buying a computer - same thing, and it's been that way for a decade or more.

No matter when you buy something, there will always be something new and better out in six months or less. That's just the way it works.

This is only an issue for those of us obsessed with having the latest, greatest phone. That's not most of the buying public.

Would you prefer that Motorola put out fewer models, and only update its lineup once a year? They wouldn't be very competitive that way. Personally, I'd rather them pump out more models, more often. That way they can stay ahead of the curve on technology, and they're more likely to release a phone that's exactly what I'm looking for (naturally it's different for e...

Rich, after I posted this question I saw that PDF document containing Tom Lynch's presentation on the upcoming handsets with a pic of the V635 saying that it will have EDGE.

That was part 1 of the presentation. Here's part 2 for those that want to see the rest of it.

That's what I was referring to.

Although the photo is not the V635 - it's just a recycled placeholder image. You can see that it says "V600" on the phone itself. Plus, a reliable source informs me that the V635 will look a bit different - it should be pretty easy to tell a V600/V620 apart from a V635.
