I might be way off base on this, but for the past couple of weeks I've been looking into moving onto Straight Talk for multiple reasons. (Cheaper, able to use imported GSM phones, etc.)
However, I'm not sure I want to make the switch without getting a feel for what the coverage is like in my area. With the Droid 3 being a "Global" phone, would I be able to unlock it via Verizon, buy a Straight Talk phone (with SIM card) and use the Droid 3 on the local AT&T towers. That way, I can test the call quality/3G without canceling my contract first.
I know that it's possible to use unlocked GSM phones on Straight Talk's wireless and use a non-Straight Talk phone on the AT&T frequencies.
Is this possible with the frequencies/SIM slot in the Droid 3? Has anybody done this before? Thanks!
