    sometimes they'll list it on the phone description pages, but since it's a quad-band that covers all four GSM bands used in the US, you could always buy an unlocked one and use it with any of the US GSM providers.

    I don't believe it has a stylus, so...yeah...the joystick, like most smartphones.

    That looks pretty sweet. I am starting to get tired of flip phones, but I wouldn't mind having that phone...

    The V600 is an excellent phone...although its a bandwagon handset so to say, motorola is proving themselves worthy once again but for me, Sony Ericsson tops the list. :)

    looks like it would be hard to type and look at the full screen at the same time

    heh. good point, but there's probably an on-screen keyboard...or perhaps it does have a stylus after all.
