I think to use the cell phone you need to get a little thingy (i forget the
geekspeek) from the provider which you put in (this uses a standard slot
perhaps located behind the battery, for generic phones) So it hooks up to
their network and uses a certain protocol whatever standard they use. After
that 3G, 4G I am not sure but I think the N900 does 3G max...

Anyway thanks for the info, I have pondered the N900 seen on Ebay and
considered the design but seeing that indeed it needs a hardware update. I
really like the design though. I may still get one, money is tight for me
but we'll see.

Anybody upgrades, keep me in mind to buy your old N900 when the time comes
to replace it.
