According to the Circle BMW web site -- the new StarTac phones ARE dual mode digital/analog.

-- Kelly

: : The entire At&T system in the usa is TDMA, thus buying the TDMA version will make the phone work in anywhere usa..

: I e-mailed Circle BMW concerning use of either of their phones and their response was that I would NOT be able to use the TDMA phone with AT&T's one rate plan, since it requires a dual band phone. AT&T's web site is very specific that ALL of their phones are dual band. The StarTAC that just came out for AT&T (November), is a dual band, and prior to that, there were no StarTac's for AT&T Wireless (even know they existed for Bell Atlantic. I've e-mailed AT&T and am waiting on a response, but they usually take forever and I'm sure I'll get a convoluted answer from them as well. Seems that nobody can answer this one with any level of certinty.

: Regards,
