    Making a stock D2 global?

    I was comparing my friends D2G to my D2 and its the same d!&$n phone. The only diff. is the sim card beside the SD card. In the place of the sim card I have a little plastic black piece that looks like it should come out. So I do not see why we can't make our D2's world capable. I would like to know what some more experienced D2 users think.

    Merely having a SIM card does not enable your phone to be a "global" phone. It needs a GSM radio built in for the various GSM frequencies. The D2 that you have only has a CDMA radio inside of it. So even if there was a way you could get your phone to read your SIM card, you wouldn't be able to use it on a GSM network. Not that there is any way to get your phone to read your SIM card anyways...

    He has a SIM card in his phone. His phone has both a CDMA radio and GSM radio. You need a SIM card to operate on a GSM network. The SIM card identifies who you are on the network.
