QUOTE=beefchopper;2252664]Thanks for all of the very useful information in this thread.
I spend one month straight in Italy two times a year and the other ten months in the US. Some time ago I bought a TMobile phone and unlocked it and have been using it with a sim card from an Italian phone company when in Italy. It is fine for my purposes to have an Italian phone number when in Italy and I have been able to get my emails and access the internet on this phone. My problem is that I didn't realize the phone I bought was pre-loaded with so much crap that cannot be removed (I don't want to root) and cannot be moved to the SD card that it does not have neough room left in internal memory to allow me use many of the apps I like and use regularly on my Verizon phone while in the US. Until seeing this thread I had planned to buy a new phone for use in Italy as well as to upgrade my DroidX to a 4G phone. Now I'm happy to see that it might be possible to do all I want with only one new phone.
I think the information here shows me how to changer the GSM settings and APN information on the Razr Maxx so that I can direct the phone to look for my Italian phone company when I insert that sim card. Less clear to me is what happens when I return home and since my primary use will still be in the US that is most important to me.
After I make the changes for the APN settings, return to the US and reinsert the Verizon sim card will the phone again work on the Verizon 4G network immediately or will I need to change some of the settings back first? If so, exactly what settings will I need to change? Thanks very much.[/QUOTE]
