    I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to knowing the different frequencies that wireless phones use. I did a search and found all the info I needed to know with regard to the CDMA 600, but I couldn't find the info for GSM.

    Here's what I'd like to know:

    1. What frequencies does the GSM 600 receive?

    2. What does that mean to me if I plan on using T-Mobile?

    3. Will I be able to use the GSM 600 for "analog roaming"? (by this, I mean the old networks that exist practically all over the country, not just concentrated in urban areas)

    4. If the answer to #3 is yes, then will I be able to turn that off somehow, so I don't unknowingly rack up a $50 bill on one call, since I'm probably paying $.80 per mihute?

    1. 850/900/1800/1900MHz.

    2. T-Mobile in the United States uses 1900MHz Digital. You can "roam" on Cingular or other GSM providers in the United States without paying any roaming charges if you use a National plan with T-Mobile. With GSM you have the option of roaming elsewhere in the world or switching your SIM card for a local carrier overseas.

    3. The Treo 600 (either GSM or CDMA) is a DIGITAL-ONLY phone.

    4. Not applicable.
