    hows it going, I'm currently in Japan doing U.S. navy ****, and I'd like to invest my money in the best phone on the market,which is the droid X in my oppinion

    I was wondering if I buy one from verizon without a contract($650) will it only be compatible with verizon? or if I'm lucky enough to find one unlocked from somewhere else would I even be able to use it here Japan.

    and last but not least, does anybody know a site where I could find one, I've seen em on ebay,but I see droid X's that say unlocked but have verizon in parenthesis...there is no verizon in japan!

    if I cant have a droid, nobody can!

    degreed, I think an Incredible 2 would be a better choice as it's a global phone. That may work better for ya.

    Just buy a Droid2Global from Ebay or some other website, and get a Japanese sim-card. The Droid2Global is actually clocked higher than the DX (1.2 vs 1.0 Ghz) Then when you get back to the states you can sell it and buy a newer phone.
