Just be careful as there are two models of these phones one for N.A. and one for everywhere else. The N.A. version does not have W-CDMA.
Also, please don't flame me about Nokia's BlackBerry implementation, I really don't care and am just trying to provide a solution that RIM hasn't yet.
I provided that exact same advice in another thread about Japan. Forgot to put it here.
The E62 is the NA version I believe you are referring to.
