    The Nokia 8587 and 8887 both run on cdma 800mhz, and can be used in the U.S. on 800mhz cdma carriers, Verizon for example. However, they are single mode, so there is no analog support at all. The phones are actually made by a Korean company called Telson, and use Telson's own cdma chipsets. I suppose if one could get either phone, and reset the msl to 000000, and put the esn of the phone to an active VZW account, you can dial *228xx from it and update the prl to VZ's, you will have a usable phone in most VZ areas (there are some areas where VZ is only 1900mhz). Oh, and don't bother with the 8877, its cdma 1700mhz, and its only used in Korea.
