1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    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.
