    Just wondering what models are available on Telus that can be used as a phone worldwide, and as a PDA. If there's any details on good plans that'd be a bonus too :bigthumb: it'd be used as a travel phone at first, then as a regular cell phone once travel is complete.

    halp? if theres something available in Canada, great. if there's something available in Japan, thats okay.

    NOPE. Telus isn't even GSM.
    If you want GSM, you have to go with Fido or Rogers

    Oh, almost all phones from Japan can't be used outside of Japan

    So what would you guys prefer, Motorola V600 or Sony Ericsson T630?
    I'd like to get rid of my V60 sometime soon...

    Telus has quite the useless selection of phones.

    CDMA used to be the shit when TDMA was the only other game around. Now its an afterthought at best. Sigh.
