    My operator just rolled out UMTS (WCDMA)... I'd love to switch but can't
    find a phone that suits my needs. Currently have SE Z600 which I find too
    bulky. So far I fancied Motorola V3, but it lacks WCDMA. The only other
    option seems SE V800, but again it seems too bulky, plus I gather it's not
    available outside Vodafone networks. Are there any WCDMA flip phones out
    there that are really lightweight and small, and support tri-band GSM, and
    have Bluetooth? I don't care about megapixel camera (or any camera for that
    matter), and screen size.

    Plan B is to go for a lightweight tri-band GSM + EDGE + Bluetooth flip phone
    model as it will provide me significant boost over current GPRS speeds...
    yet again I can't seem to find any.

    Any suggestions?

    Good one. Still a bit on bulky side, but at least it's smaller than SE Z600.
    But nobody has V551 available this side of pond... Europe that is. Oh well,
    I guess I'll have to wait.

    Had you actually held a V551 (as I have) you would know that it's actually
    quite petite. ;-)

    OK, how about data connectivity and Outlook sync issues? I've been reading
    user reviews on V3, and most say GPRS dialup doesnt work, and you need
    specific third-party software to make Outlook sync a reality. V551 is the
    same platform as V3, right?

    On another note... can one possibly buy unlocked V551? Via mail order, of
    course.

    CSD, GPRS, and EDGE. Also Bluetooth.

    Motorola PhoneTools.

    Nonsense.

    Every V551 I've activated has been unlocked. I just put my T-Mobile
    SIM into my wife's V551 and it worked fine.
