I have been reading the community archives since December 2006 but have not been able to keep up with it since just before the initial developer release due to school. I also realize that there is a lot of work to do before final release. I have not previously posted as I've usually found my question already asked and answered before I was ready to ask it.
<br><br>Currently I haven't found any mention of this on the wiki and I'm not sure how to search the archives if that is even possible so please forgive me if this has already been discussed and/or answered in previous threads just give me a link to the thread and I'm perfectly willing to read but I fear I am too far behind with my limited free time to read all archive posts over again.
<br><br>What I was wondering was could the Neo be designed for later releases to use a R-UIM card that is CDMA compatible as well as a GSM SIM card? There are already phones that are usable on CDMA and GSM networks sold in the US that do not use R-UIM cards and from what I've read the R-UIM and SIM cards use the same slot.
<br><br>There is a push by US CDMA customers for their networks to allow 3rd party phones through R-UIM cards. I have seen multiple cell phone forums that are monitored by the phone companies that have many users calling for R-UIM cards in the US. One of these forums was set up by sprint specifically so that their customers could post their complaints and concerns. I myself have written to the FCC and plan on writing to the state legislature to force the CDMA giants to open their networks and will continue to do so until I get results, even though this may take quite some time.
<br><br>That being said I apologize for the length and if I am repeating a previous question but now that I have found the phone of my dreams I would dearly love to be able to use it on the network that provides me with the best coverage in my area instead of being limited to AT&T/Cingular or no Neo at all.
