There's no distributor for Brazil. I became part of a group in the USA
- I have contacts there - but there hasn't been a 900mhz phone sold
via the online store yet. My group was assured you could mix 900mhz /
850mhz phones, bought a 850mhz phone that I can't use, and is waiting
to exchange it. I've been reading this list forever without a phone to
use. I understand your strategy may make general sense, but there be
casualties. Just ranting.
Any rough idea of when 900mhz phones will be available via the online store?
