The radio software on the Droid 3 is written to not allow connections onto ATT or Tmobile USA frequencies.

He could get around that GSM limitation by replacing the radio software with a version written for a Chinese version of the Droid 3, XT833 or something, but that is complicated and troublesome. The actual physical GSM radio in the Droid3 can work on USA GSM frequencies, but not with the stock radio software, and then a SIM from anyone would enable service, but getting around Verizon's software lock in the radio code is non-trivial.
