Frankly, i'm not that suprised, 850 really is a US thing. You are missing out
on lot of phones because of the different frequency and the amount of control
the operators have over phones. Really, the US is just starting to catch up
with the rest of the world. Tri-band phones are fairly common over here
(although recently most new phone have been quad-band), and frankly, they can
be used throughout the world, except the US. Thats good enough for biggest
part of all GSM users. Your the minority on the one.
