now, before i get yelled at, i know that japan/korea use their own crazy little system and we have no chance of using one of their cool wcdma/cdmaone/foma phones here in the states... but what if we could???

i'm assuming that these "global ready" phones would roam off of verizon's network, so... wouldn't that make it possible to activate it through verizon? my friend's a direct dealer and told me that any phone compatable with their system is able to be activated, and that the ESN doesn't matter... thoughts anybody? i'm gonna be there in a few days and getting a phone there, it would just be nice if there was any way i could use it here also.
