I think :iconcanona2200: was asking me about these some months ago.  Very cool model!  I have a bunch of StarTAC's but nothing rare like this.

The Rainbow StarTAC was only available for the European GSM networks, no US version of this model was ever made.

I know. Doesn't mean it isn't available though. I have Malaysian, Saudi Arabian, Japanese, Canadian, German, and Swedish phones :P
