I've read through all of these posts, and so much talk about it coming out and so much talk of it not. I've looked through every dark dusty corner of the Internet looking for a version with the 850 band. I've even looked into seeing if there was some way to mod the phone to using 850, instead of 900, and found nothing.
So now for what I want from anyone:
If you can find it, or if you have it and are willing to sell it (for a reasonable price), and can prove that it has the 850 band, contact me and we'll talk.
Or, if you have found some way to make it work with the 850 band (and can prove it), contact me and let me know AND I WILL BOW DOWN TO YOU FOREVER.
