You would think carriers like Verizon would want to push more Global phones as a way to compete with AT&T.
THough with my experience with Verizon phones in europe, I'm not sure that's such a good idea. My experience with Verizon blackberries in Europe has been HORRIBLE with data connection and speeds. AT&T's blackberries are much much better.

Good to know I guess...we just received an OTA update too. Not sure what it is. Didn't install it since I am rooted.

Well here's what the OTA does:
Updated Signal Strength meter to 5 bar (RSSI)
Screen timeout issues while connected to Wi-Fi have been resolved
Mobile Hotspot stalling issue resolved
Improved audio quality during Voice call
Reduced forced closures
Improved device stability - reduces continuous resets
Resolved issue with Task Manager stopping mail background service

Quite a large number of folks are seeing significant battery drain issues after the OTA. Perhaps something to do with the Verizon Location Agent. A quick look at the Marketplace, where an update lives, shows a very large number of "1" ratings getting posted.
