i want a v80, which works on 900/1800/1900 band. the local cingular uses 850/1900. and i can't use t-mobile in my area because i want free mobile to mobile from cingular to talk to my GF free. so anyways will this phone work well? the guy (sales rep) said 1900 is the "back up" band, and it will kinda work but not really. i always thoght that 850/1900 means it operates on both bands. can someone explain this to me? will the phone only work in the city and not in rural areas? i am doubting this guy because i kinda know him and he is sometimes full of shit, and i know some other people from other states have these phones which work well.
