    The Radio Chip, no Rev A

    I opened up the phone today, pics to follow later. The phone uses an MSM6500 chip. This chip supports CDMA and GSM, but, only Rel 0 for 1xEV-DO. So no chance of this being upgraded to Rev A.

    The specs are here MSM6500 Chipset Solution

    Just because the MSM6500 is in there, doesn't mean you will be able to use GSM side. There is no radio or software support for that. Simply put, the chip is just capable of it.

    Heh, I did not mean to imply that it would. I was only referring to what the chip supports and the specs listed for it. There is obviously a few things missing on the gsm side.
