The Z600 and Sucky Cingular

Cingular went GSM in my area a while back. Though I didn't upgrade (they didn't have the Motorola v600 I want), I did note that they had the phones in stock and were gladly selling them to anyone who wanted them.

Knowing that they are, indeed, GSM, I ventured over to to see if they had a listing for a new phone I heard about today, the S-E Z600. Funny, but I shop for phones, type in my zip code, and all I see are TDMA phones, not the $300 GSM ones.

Cingular, get your act together. Please.

  3. You should try popping over to the store anyway, and see if it has arrived. There's been a number of time the online store wasn't up to date with the store's inventory.

    And I doubt you need 850Mhz for GSM with Cingular. You don't need it out here in CA.

  4. I brought home my Motorola v600 last night and attempted to set it up with my Mac. I've waited quite a while for this phone, so I was quite eager. Unfortunately, Mac OS X 10.3.3 and iSync 1.4 greeted my...

  5. I've been waiting for the z600 myself... I've looked everywhere on the net with little sucess...

    I did find one web site based in new york (or in that area) that would give something like a $75 discount on it when buying it with service... But the phone istelf was really expensive, so the final price wasn't much better than eBay...
