    Dumb question here. Got the unlock code from Verizon. Got a new Blau SIM card, the dealer (E-Plus+) activated the new SIM card. Put in the new SIM card, turned on the phone and was asked for a pin. Entered the pin that came with the Blau SIM but no service. When/how do I enter the unlock code from VZ?

    Thanks!

    Never mind. Figured it out. I had to set the phone to GSM/UMTS. Once I did that, it asked for the SIM unlock code. I thought it would work with the phone set to Global but it didn't

    Has anyone here from Aus successfully purchased the Droid 3 and got it to work on the local networks? There seem to be some shadows being cast about the 3G reception (HSPDA 850) for this model down under..

    Where did you found that about the 3G reception problem?

    ^ No confirmed cases of any problems with 3G; technically the phone supports 2100 HSDPA yet a few retailers have echoed that it won't work with Optus 3G.

    Phone has both AUS 3G bands: 850 and 2100 MHz. In theory you are all covered if you are" down under"

    True.

    It would be reassuring nonetheless to receive some local confirmation of support, though at this rate I'll probably end up playing the role of guinea pig in testing this new beast out within our shores.

    I can provide you the sim unlock code that will work (if the code doesnt work I dont charge), getting it to work in a different part of the world is your responsibility. Code takes up to 4 days to obtain per IMEI but is guaranteed to work. Payments are accepted through google check or paypal. Call/text me for more details: 312-863-9386

    I was actually in Sydney a couple of weeks ago and purchased the Droid3 just for my trip. I called Verizon Customer Support prior to leaving and obtained an unlock code. When I got through customs I went straight over to the Vodafone booth at the airport and signed up for a $29.95 pre-paid sim plan which included 500MB of data and $150 calling credits. The sim and service worked great all week. I used about 50MB of data so if I had stuck with the pay as you go Verizon plan it would have been costly. Oh and I used Google Voice for free texting back to the U.S.
