    Is Droid 4 ready for foreign SIMs?

    The block that prevents the phone connecting to a GSM carrier in the US. See. for example, Master Thread for Radio/GSM Unlocking Discussion in America - xda-developers Not a problem on the Bionic, but is on the Razr and droid 4.

    Is Droid 4 ready for foreign SIMs?

    Yes, Verizon Wireless, but I don't think anyone has managed to remove the block (on XDA anyway)

    JB 4.1.2 installed with no issues

    It's a sad but true fact that every Android update produces a large number of "Worse thing ever, broke my phone" posts whereas most of those with no issues don't post of course. This is something like my sixth, and I still don't understand why some get bad issues (apps, individual phone...

    The Complete Jellybean Thread

    Um, yes we do! It worked for me (after my Voodoo restore somehow didn't quite work) and someone else reported success earlier on in the thread.

    The Complete Jellybean Thread

    Yes, I kept root with OTA Rootkeeper. All was good, TB worked for example, and several other root apps. But when I replaced FoxFi with Wifi Tether for Root, it didn't work, and it said I wasn't rooted. I also downloaded a root checker that said the device wasn't properly rooted. I had this...

    good bye droid2 global

    Well, there are issues, but not that bad. Just went to the UK with my D4, and took my old d2g as backup in case I had problems with local Sims in the 4. (Which in fact worked fine). This was the first time I had used the 2 in almost a year, and I had forgotten how nice it is. Yes, the 4 has...

    Using a Droid 4 in Europe

    You need to distinguish two cases: 1) You replace the Verizon SIM with a local SIM. In this case, no charges from Verizon apart from your normal monthly charge, and you are not using up data/text/minutes as far as Verizon is concerned. You pay the local carrier, often via pay as you go...

    Upgrade from the Droid 2 Global to the Droid 4?

    Well, with the pace of technology, I would expect that in two years or so the Droid 4 will be so seriously outdated that you wouldn't make that statement, even if it had super-Maxx battery.

    Upgrade from the Droid 2 Global to the Droid 4?

    I guess that's a good price, just not sure how much of an upgrade it is (small screen, no LTE, just like the D2G) but it might work with less hassle! Please let us know what she thinks once she has had it for a while.

    Droid 4 with foreign SIM

    I used the Talkmobile SIMs from Carphone Warehouse (on my D2G, haven't been there since I got the 4). Worked fine, and the site has documentation on how to set the APN, which worked fine (on that phone!). Didn't get unlimited, but 25MB per day for 15 cents, which is much much better than...

    Droid 4 with foreign SIM

    You have to love the Verizon Wireless web site. I was talking about the Global phone page, Global Phone Which does show the Droid 4! There are lots of reports on other forums of this phone working fine internationally, both with the Vodafone sim and the local SIM, and the UK was one of the...

    Droid 4 with foreign SIM

    The droid 4 is now global with ICS, it is listed as a global phone in the global phone section of the website. It's unlocked, so you can use a foreign sim (microsim)

    Droid 4 GSM Clarification

    This is bootloader locked, which, while very important to many, is nothing to do with the SIM slot being locked to Verizon, which is what was being referred to. SIM slot locking determines whether a non-Verizon GSM SIM can be used in the phone, and at least at present, it appears that the...

    Upgrade from the Droid 2 Global to the Droid 4?

    I used my Droid 2 Global until about 6 weeks ago, when I got the Droid 4 (full price to keep unlimited data). I'm pretty happy, the ICS update has given back the global part, which is important for me. Pros: I live in a strong 4G area, so the extra speed is very nice Keyboard is...

    Droid 4 GSM Clarification

    Checked it how, and where does it say "Locked"? The normal message would be something like "Subsidy Code" or "Network Unlock Code"

    FM Radio

    I use it too, but that is not what was meant. TuneIn gets radio stations via the internet, not native FM, so a) a data connection is needed, and b) probably not all local stations, only those with an internet feed.

    stock build prop

    I'm with orangechoochoo here! If you are getting the error messages, it merely reports the first one (so checksum on build.prop failing) but if you modified build.prop, you may well have modified other files as well, and you will need to request these files as well. Since you are going to...

    Wha's safe to freeze now with ICS?

    Note that ICS allows you to disable some installed apps even without rooting. You may need to uninstall updates first. You can do this for several of the obvious ones, Let's Golf, Kindle etc.
