Has anyone used the Bionic outside the USA. I travel to Brazil and Verizon NOW tells me that it will not work in Brazil. I had a POS Verizon Treo which worked fine. They say cant use a 4G phone in Brazil. I am thinking force it into CDMA, but they say NOPE. I have called several times (hoping to get someone more knowledgable) But same answer each time. Any help appreciated.

Pretty sure it will not work outside of US/Canada. You need a global capable phone with a SIM card.

It might work on CDMA. My Thunderbolt worked in Mexico.

As long as it's CDMA and on the same 850/1900 Mhz then yes it should work. VZW would have to be a roaming partner though.
