Default Verizon to offer "International" BlackBerry model

This is just a rumor from our account rep who "swears" that Verizon is working with RIM on an "international capable" BlackBerry that should be out sometime around Q3 this year. I'm guessing "international capable" means GSM support in addition to CDMA.

They did that with one of their samsung phones as well. It has CDMA and GSM 900 & 1800.

And it is horrible. We have been bugging Verizon and Motorola for a GSM/CDMA phone for years.

I'll believe it when I see it.
