Thanks. I was worried this might be the case.
I'll read the other persons suggestions anyways and follow that lead.
Sucks, cause here in San Diego, I can find all kinds of G2's and I'm currently using one. Got it for $200 on CraigsList. Works great with T-Mobiles MySimpleMobile $60 a month pay as you go plan! :-) Not as good of coverage as Verizon.. but for half the price.. I'll live with it until I can afford to use the LTE network.
But Girlfriend wants a phone. We've been tryin the MyTouch Slide 3g with mixed results and lost texts, but it doesn't have the right UMTS either and it is just 2G.
So if I'm going to buy another one.. I want it to work.
Droid 2 Global is another option according to my search on Gsmarena.com
I'm hopping I can just burn a custom rom onto a G2 if I can't find a "true" Z.
