As with many other technoligies, US 3G is not compatible with 3G in the rest of the whole world (we like to be different, apparently). So the 8707v (Vodafone 3G device) will show 3G in the UK, but GPRS in the US. There is an icon at the top that will show 3G, EDGE or GPRS.
There are no US based 3G BlackBerrys yet - there are some other 3G devices, but not BBs.
Does that help (even a little)?
Tha helps a lot ! I dont know if his colleagues have BlackBerry, (maybe I should have stated that).
