8707 vodaphone in LA with cingular
hi, has anyone verified that 8707 does not support EDGE?

someone in the US that has cingular and a 8707 verify this?

i am deciding whether to get a 8700 or a 8707... since i travel a lot to asia.. including japan..i would like to have 1 phone that covers japan, china, taiwan, vietnam and then in US.

thanks for the help!

the 8707 does not do EDGE, if youre in the US, you will see GPRS at best

Postalrecon 09-02-2006 03:02 PM

Unfortunately, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) makes sure that we stay at least 2-years behind the European Union when it comes to cellular and data communication technology.

damn. so that means i have to get 2 damn phones to have one work with GSM everywhere else.. then one just for japan.. that really sucks...

is there a phone out there that currently does 3G, EDGE, GPRS, GSM,and blackberry email/internet function out there?

Why is EDGE support so important to you? I use a 8707v precisely because it does work in Japan, EU and US. I don't use it as a modem so don't care about the connection speed (GPRS works just fine).

Just curious. Did any1 ever tried a BB-8700 in vietnam with a mobicard (vietnam sim card) Don't want to go there and find out the 8700 don't work there, and have to buy a phone that I don't like.

will let you know next week!
i got like 5 SIM cards... one from US, one from China, one from HK, one from Taiwan, and one for Vietnam....

so we'll see if it will work with the 8707v with all the different sim cards...i think it should since they are all GSM.. as long as the phone is unlocked..
.... and we'll see if it will work in Japan too!!!
which it should.. since it's 3G.
