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??? http://au.kddi.com/english/global/se...a/america.html

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.
