Just to clarify, I'm betting that the Neo WILL be able to get onto the 
networks via GPRS.  I know there is a lot of discussion, but GSM and 
GPRS are standardized protocols.  Therefore, if the NEO hardware is able 
to implement these standards, then it WILL be able to get onto the 
network (which I'm willing to bet that it does).

Sorry to be condescending, in that last email, but it was written in a 
somewhat arrogant tone.  So, please no bad blood on the mail list. 

Bottom line, you WILL be able to use the Neo on GPRS networks in the 
US.  My other email has the plans that will work.  Again, they may take 
some additional work to get up and running, but eventually it will work 
and will be a much more user-friendly experience.  But if you want a 
phone during the developers phase, then don't count on it happening 
within a specific timetable unless you are willing to do the work yourself.
