    I was initially pretty excited by the announcement of the new EDGE-enabled
    Z500a ... until I noted that for some inexplicable reason, Bluetooth was left
    out! Likewise IR (unlike the K500), so only cable connection is possible.
    Whatever were they thinking?!

    Instead I upgraded to the Motorola V551, which I highly recommend.

    I am assuming it has edge as the ad on the Cingluar web site does not
    list it as a feature. That is why I did not bother looking at that phone.
    Thanks, I will search for more info about that phone.
