Verizon BlueTooth phone?

    Between the Moto v270c and the SE t608, there was also the SE t61c (which I
    had for about a year) which had a BT dongle (BTA-10 if I'm remembering
    correctly) available. Inelegant (just like the Moto add-on), and not
    offically supported (SE only acknowledged it for the TDMA version), but it
    did work per several newsgroup people who bought and tried it out anyways.
    The phone was hampered however, by the fact that VZW never sold it directly
    (it was approved though, mine even had the VZW logo on it) but instead only
    through indirects.

    With support like that, it's no suprise that SE dropped out of the CDMA
    market before the next generation (of which the t608 and it's VZW twin
    t606(?) were part) ever really got launched. Too bad.. it would have been a
    killer candybar style color phone, basically a CdMa version of the GSM t610
    that's been jumping like hotcakes the past year or so. The BT feature would
    have just been a bonus, though there were rumors at the time that the VZW
    version would have BT disabled, as had happened before.

    Anyways, a little bit of history. Based on past experiences, if BT is a deal
    breaker for you, just go sign up with the GSM carrier that's best in your
    area now and get on with your life. If total coverage area is more
    important, buy a data cable for whichever CDMA phone you choose and get on
    with your life. The t61c is still out there, though very hard to find, but
    it's a pretty old phone compared to what's out now.

    It hasn't been hampered in any way that I am aware of but I guess its
    possible, so can't say for sure.
