    So you have probably heard the leaked news around the web that Verizon is finally catching up to Sprint in offering live TV on your handset and its supposed to launch on 1/29. They are partnering with Qualcomm to stream their Mediaflo service which is supposed to be pretty good..........it will offer TV on your cell phone I think for Vcast subscribers............but here is my question..........do you have to buy a new handset for this? I have a Verizon Treo 700p - is this phone able to get Vcast - or do you have to have a special chip to get and run the TV service (i.e. upgrade to a new phone from the Treo?)...........

    VCast is NOT available for all Verizon Wireless Treo's, including 700p.

    If live/streaming TV is what you want, you may want to try MobiTV http://www.mobitv.com/products/products.php?i=treo.
