    I travel between the US and Belize frequently. I have my old phone set up with my Belizean number on NAM2. When I enter the country, I simply switch to NAM2 and my phone works with my provider there. Upon returning to the states, I switch back to NAM1 and I'm back on Verizon.

    I cannot find any way to do this in the Droid settings? Is this there? Is there an app that will allow this? A config file you can adjust in a rooted phone?

    BTW, not looking to do anything to do anything illegal/wrong here...just want to be able to easily switch providers.

    There's nothing illegal what you're doing. While in the U.S. you want to be on automatic, because you could be limiting yourself if some carriers towers are on "A" and others are on "B". When you go to Belize, it should automatically detect they're on "B". As for a specific Droid setting, I have not looked it up, but probably on your keypad do ##PROGRAM<SEND> will get you to the menu to change the NAM.

    Thanks for the response. I've been to that menu before. It has a setting called Extended NAM, but no way to switch from NAM1 to NAM2.

    It has settings for:
    MIN
    True IMSI
    IMSI_11_12
    MDN
    CDMA Sys ID
    Country Code
    CDMA Network
    1st Channel A
    1st Channel B
    2nd Channel A
    2nd Channel B
    Emergency 1
    Emergency 2
    Emergency 3
    Access Overload Class
    SPC

    My guess would be 1st Channel A and 1st Channel B are the ones you are looking for. Not that a VZW Droid owner will ever have it, but I believe the 1st and 2nd Channels is for people who have 2 separate VZW numbers for their phone. In the over 2 years I worked for VZW I believe I only ever saw one account with one phone and 2 lines.
