    I may have been out of it for awhile but what is a Compact
    Flash cell modem? I know of the pcmcia cell modem cards. but before
    you flame me please help me understand.\
    If its a cellular GSM modem it needs to be able to do 800/1900
    mhz frequencies (U.S standard). Sometimes the U.S 800 frequency is
    misslabled 850 mhz. But we don't have 900/1800 mhz here in the U.S. If
    this card can do 800/900/1800/1900 (quad band) or 900/1800/1900 or
    800/1800/1900 (tri-band). you can use it. if the 900/1800/1900 range
    you may be stuck with T-mobile which does 1900 mhz here in the U.S.
    The other range 800/1800/1900 would allow you to use cingular and
    t-mobile. So if this card does those ranges. what does its matter if
    it is at the U.K. if the price is good and it has at least the
    800/1900 frequencies it should work.

    See for example:

    Things like FCC licensing, support, and warranty....

    Even the T-Mobile folks here in the US sounded peeved about "all the
    cool things T-Mobile Germany has and we can't get"....
