    Folks, my apologies if this has been covered before; but does anyone make a "true world phone"----all 4 GSM frequencies and CDMA for here in US?

    I have had a Treo 650 on TMo for the past few years---great device, but there is an intermittant dead spot at my house with any GSM carrier.
    Mrs. brought Verizon with her when she moved in---great coverage, but only for this side of the pond.

    What I would like is a phone I could just pop a local SIM card in when we visit in laws in Ukraine; or TMo SIM card for here----or it would pick up CDMA with no US Sim card installed.

    Anything else---GPS, apps, even OS I am willing to compromise on if we can get the universal coverage.

    The wife looked at this already--it only handles GSM overseas (900 & 1800 MHz)
    Her friends back home suggested Nokia N95 or something similar, but I don't know what freq or standards Verizon uses

    Sprint (8830) is probably the better choice as you can use any 3rd party sim for the "world phone" and cheaper than what Verizon would charge using their sim in another country.

    Yeah, this one looks more like the winner out of the ones I have seen. I didn't realize sprint had one as well. Thanks.
