This phone is a solid performer -- as a phone. In the US, it is reliable. In Europe and elsewhere where GSM must be used there are many imperfections that Verizon is still evolving.

I have had this phone for the past two years. When I first had it in Europe, caller ID and Call Waiting did not work. On a recent trip to Europe, it did work -- So Verizon is responding, but to a point.

The phone is extremely limited because you cannot utilize all the functions of the phone very well. It is not easy to transfer contacts to the SIM card. You have to make separate entries. There are many occasions in which the phone just cannot find a network. In Europe it defaults to Vodafone to such a point that if Vodafone coverage is poor, it does not secondary default to the next carrier. Instead it will seek out the bad Vodafone signal. If you want another carrier, you have to manually select the carrier and the phone goes through a warm-boot to get there.

The large, brilliant display is fantastic, except in bright light or sun, where the glare and screen saturation pales the display. You will have no problem lighting up your hotel room late at night...

Verizon customer service is hit or miss. Whatever you do -- call the general phone number via 611 and ask for global services immediately. They are knowldgable and will do everything possible to assist you. Otherwise, if you don't ask for a global services person, you will get a representative that knows very little, will try hard, but can do little to help.

I am waiting for a decent global PDA -- Maybe Verizon will get smart and come out with a PDA Global Phone that is better than the cheezy I830. The I830 uses an old browser in a high tech phone... go figure! It will be a flop like the Treo 600.

C'mon Verizon -- give me what I want!
