OK keep calling. And keep posting here with updates. I don't understand what would be different in the red phone vs say the pink RAZR.....they are both Motorola. And that doesn't make sense them saying the service might not work the same carrier to carrier. That doesn't sound right.

Yeah I don't get it either. Looks to me like they are basically the same phone.

IIRC part of the monthly charge was going to to (RED) as well so maybe it is only Sprint that has worked out that part of the deal so far?

Sprint is CDMA and Cingular GSM - two entirely different systems, so the phone guts would be a little different on each - you'd have to have a version for each. Cingular and T-Mobile run on the same GSM system, so if you got an unlocked phone you could use it on either (but not on Sprint or Verizon).

from my understanding that one is for the uk/europe folks.. In the US the RED MOTOROLA RAZOR V3M is the one being sold here.

see this link: http://direct.motorola.com/hellomoto/red/

Yeah, I know it is the UK phone, but it is available for US customers to purchase. It even says we will need a US charger for it, b/c it only comes with a UK one.

I was just curious to see if anybody in the US had purchased it and if it worked with his/her network.

but the european phones use a completely different system then the U.S. Cell Phones do. How will it work here? I checked motorola's website and they don't make it available for purchase.

that site you linked earlier is a UK seller. And if you try and buy it now it says that its no longer available. If you were to buy from them it would be a UK system cell phone which wouldn't work here in the US.
