Danny, ah that would explain a lot. 
I am not familiar with US phone carriers.

There is a company in Uk using the s60's with theyre data collection system that works on android.

I don't know what it is that makes one phone work with Verizon and one phone not.

I don't think Verizon does either. [frown]

Hm I think it may be that Verizon got limited or their own messed up GSM stuff or try to hold on to legacy systems many years after it is possible in this world and don't follow the ISO standard.......... but I may be wrong, maybe they just got unlucky. Anyway there are always 2 versions of every phone released, one for the US market and another for the rest of the world due to frequency bands available and others irqs so if there is a phone not doing that for some reason it may only be available in one market or the other. I think.

verizon its CDMA technology. 

In my country many years ago we had CDMA (no chip phone) then came the GSM (phones with chip) and all carriers went to this technology, since here its common to bring/send used stuff from relatives (cameras, phones, tvs, etc) I remember many people bringing verizon phones and could not activated on any carrier because it didnt use chip.

I guess GSM is cheaper to deploy in small scale but america must have a huge network and is not cheap to change technology in a big scale

Do you need a carrier connection to get the CAT phone/cam thingy to work just as a cam? 
I assume you can transfer any software and images off/on of the device using wifi (?)

Pete,

I don't know if you need a connection.  I'm guessing that you don't, though. I don't think it works off a cloud connection or anything. It stores images on whatever memory you tell it to and then I used a USB connection to transfer.  wifi might work, though.  I'll give it a try in the next couple of days.  I'm going to carry it with me tomorrow when we do a papermill so I'll probably use it for something.

Ferdy,

That sounds right to me.

My last phone was about 7 years old and I brought the chip with me when I went to get a new phone and found out that the chip won't work in the new phones.

They said that was no problem, they have an app to transfer all your stuff.

It screwed my contacts up so bad that I kind of had to start all over.  At first, instead of having about 350-400 contacts, I had 19 that I rarely used. Then I had about 300 or so but NONE of the ones I use regularly. Not even my wife. Then it downloaded them again so I had duplicates of all the contacts that I don't use.

Then I found that if I look at the contacts button with the phone app open, all my contacts are hiding in there. But if I open the contacts from the main screen, they aren't.

It beats a pencil and paper...i guess.
