    I got 2 good StarTac phones at a Police auction. How do I tell which one I can
    use on my Verizon account? How do I tell what type of phone it is (dual band,
    tri band, CDMA, TDMA)? MCI Worldcom has changed names to what?

    #1 says Motorola inside and is a ST7868W with a fixed stubby antenna. The FCC
    ID number is partly rubbed off. Says Dual Band on the display screen

    #2 says MCI Worldcom inside, has no apparent model number and has a pull-out
    extending antenna. The FCC ID number is 1HDY5YD1. Says Digital on the display
    screen.

    Thanks, Tim

    Dual band, tri-mode CDMA. Verizon will activate it if it's not on an
    account that still owes money and it's not stolen (which it isn't,
    legally, if you bought it at a police auction.)

    Most likely TDMA - they resold AT&T, IIRC. No idea as to bands/modes.

    I think that comment comes with the phone. Everyone who owns one
    feels like that.
