    HTC Rezound May House Hidden Global Radios


    Here's one of those rare mysterious stories that are always fun to share with you guys. Apparently, there was a user in the UK that purposefully bought an HTC Rezound over the holidays to try and get it to work on T-Mobile. He put a SIM card in the phone and set the network to “WCDMA Only” and actually had a working connection including data. This obviously means the phone has global radios that work without an unlock code. Interestingly, both Verizon and HTC deny that the phone has the global radios, yet there is a several week old thread on XDA indicating that several users have experienced exactly what the UK user did.

    It makes for an interesting mystery as to why VZW and HTC would lie about the phones being global or not. Could it be they plan on bringing out a refreshed version of the phone later on that will have "official" global capabilities among other things? Or could these users just be yanking our chain? What do you guys think?

    Aren't the Spectrum and D4 supposed to be global also?

    I seem to also remember there was a reports from the FCC docs about the DROID Razr having global capabilities as well.

    Indeed. We shared an article a couple of weeks ago in which VZW did confirm exactly that: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...-spectrum.html.

    Did the FCC docs for the ReZound say anything about it having a global radio?

    Not sure. I am having trouble finding a good FCC breakdown on the web. Nothing but articles about the phone's second trip to the FCC for an inductive charging back, but nothing on the radios.

    I would think news sites would perk up if the ReZounds FCC docs had mention of GSM radios in it. Like what happened with the DROID Razr.

    But if the FCC docs don't make mention of the GSM radio in the ReZound; I wonder how many of vzws LTE phones are world phones.
