    I though the 8830 was only able to be used on Euro GSM, not US GSM network...

    that is my understanding as well, but what if you are in an area with no sprint or verizon coverage?

    Let's be a bit more specific here, the 8830's GSM portion may be unlocked but it only works on non-U.S GSM networks, 900mhz and 1800mhz. In the U.S, we use GSM 850mhz and 1900mhz (Cingular/ATT and T-Mobile).

    You couldn't put in a SIM card in the 8830 and use it in the U.S or North America.

    But it is a good thing that it is unlocked, at least you have an unlocked phone for use overseas with any (prepaid) SIM card.

    After having the 8830 for a few days now the differences are clear. As I said from the beginning, its intended use is primarily overseas and as a third cdma line in the US. It's late and I will write about it over the weekend.
