    Don't think you'll have much luck getting a verizon phone to work on global gsm networks.

    I believe some M$ smartphones are now available in the US, some of them could do most of what you want. Have a look at the HTC Typhoon - it takes different names with different carriers and has a few different forms.

    wow....thank you so much peter...i looked at the typhoon and its simply amazing, perfect phone. only $200. only thing left is deciding weather to wait for the 650 or get this instead.

    one question do the M$ smartphones have office capability like word, powerpoint?

    thanks

    Yes, but it costs extra. The screen smaller but sharper than the (current) Treo.
    I'm pondering it for my next phone but there are some bugs with it - they do tend to bring out firmware updates though.
    If you want more detailed info I reccomend spending a bit of time over at www.modaco.com (it might be smartphone.modaco.com, can't remember). You'll find a lot of people complaining about bugs - particularly with games, but also a really honest appraisal of it.
