    Why would they? The only reason then would be so that people could unlock a tmobile phone and use it on att and vise-versa.

    T-Mobile is the only carrier that uses 1700MHz. It wouldn't make sense to make every device support that frequency.

    The 8830WE is a dual band phone, and according to Verizon, it wont work in Chille which is quad-band only country.

    Uhm, again, why would they?

    It makes no business sense whatsoever.

    Rogers and AT&T are the only major carriers that use 850/1900 UMTS. And that comes Standard on every Bold.

    Would it be cheaper or more expensive to manufacture a Blackberry that covers all the North America, European and Asian UMTS bands, or to make separate ones for each band?

    It would if we bought phones for full retail. Most people buy the phones for the subsidized price. The carrier then has to pay back the difference so it makes complete sense for them to keep you on their network

    then there should be a separate version sold by RIM that covers everyone.
    I wouldnt mind paying full retail price for something that I want
