    I wonder what this really means? I didn't think the chipset in the bionic supported global roaming.

    I never thought that the RAZR /maxx would be global either. Apparently there's supposed to be a global setup deep inside.....

    Getting my screw driver and a pen torch..... let's open er up!!!!

    Lmao.. yeah, not gonna happen.

    WAY back when the Razr was first announced, FCC docs for the DROID razr stated it had GSM capabilities. It was a buzz for a bit (the the GNEX killed it), and no one really asked about it again. Then the ReZound GSM radios got activated (community), and vzw stated at CES that the D4 and Spectrum where world phones.

    This got people wondering if other LTE devices were world phones also. Since oddly enough the FCC docs for the ReZound make no mention of GSM radios.

    I thought LTE works on a GSM system. The phones may not support every frequency but they can communicate in GSM.

    Tried this last week in Sweden with a prepaid sim from a local carrier and the Bionic worked just fine for calls.
