Based upon this information, I would assume that I could use the phone
in the UK...is this the case? What's the difference between the
900/1800 providers and the 1800 ones? Since my phone does not have 900
capability, will I have difficulty connecting??

Since your phone does not have the 900 band, you will be better off with
any of the 1800 ONLY providers.
