    I am going to Japan Nov. 17, and I want to get this phone. How can I make it work, and what provider can I use? Is it GSM, or CDMA? Thanks a lot!!!

    P.S. any other cool things in Japan that I should get? (other than a Nissan Skyline or Fairlady)

    EDIT: I forgot the link.

    Well, Im actually going to be in Japan myself, and I would like to know which U.S. carrier this particular phone would work with. I plan on buying the phone in Japan while I am there, bring it back to the U.S., and activate it here. Here is the specific phone I want.

    So WCDMA is not compatible with CDMA? Do they have a GSM phone that would work here? Thanks for the help!
