I purchased my SL500 in April 2004 and the Cingular V60 phone that my dealer sold me would not work on my Cingular plan. I could not get a new plan with the Mercedes phone in my area. Cingular only sells GSM plans on new customers in my area because Cincular is phasing out the TDMA phones. Yes it is true that Verizon uses CDMA and Cingular uses GSM in my area. But business customers can get the TDMA plans. I have a Motorola V60 phone with Cingular on a TDMA business plan.
I was incorrect in my pervious post on Verizon technology. Verizon does not use GSM at this current time. I meant GPS tracking instead of GSM tracking for 911 calls.
Mercedes GSM phone is expected to come out in December 2004 for Cingular/ATT. I have been waiting for the Mercedes GSM phone since April 2004.
