Default Motorola Electrify WorldPhone

Ok guys, i know this is really early, and i'm not expecting answers soon- but-


I Just want to confirm a few things with people before i import this phone into the UK.

1- The phone is a worldphone and works with umts/wcdma 2100Mhz
2- The phone is the same spec/design as the Photon 4G but without 4G
3- the phone has a UNLOCKED sim card slot out of the box.
4- The phone works in the UK with a UK sim card for voice/text/data (e.g Three UK)
5- The market works in when using a UK sim card. (as opposed to $)
6- Will i be able to set apn settings manually and save them/will US Cellular lock data to the phone.
7- Will US Cellular OTA updates work when the phone is in the UK or does it require the phone to be on US network
8- Any launch bugs that render the phone unusable?


Please, if people know the answer to these questions could they post the answers here so i can make a informed decision as to whether i should get this phone.

Thanks

1. Yes and No. It is a world phone but the gsm portion does not support 2100mhz

2. Yes
3. Yes, I am good friends with a US Cellular service tech and he believes so
4. Yes, provided the frequencies match up
5. I don't know, but I'm going to assume no. But why does it matter?
6. According to my research, you should be able to. If you want, drop a comment on my thread here. I'd appreciate it. Kindle + Motorola Electrify = Free Internet for Life
7. USCC is strange because most of their updates are actually via a pc and USB connection, so you should be fine.
8. Not to my knowledge, but I suggest you do a bit of googling.

Hi there, thanks for the reply.

Sounds good so far.

Just two more questions. Three UK are a 3G only network and run on 2100Mhz frequency. They use sim cards. If i was to put in a Three Uk sim card, would it work?

And also, do you know if this phone will be released without contract by a retailer who ships to the UK. E.g amazon/ebay.

Thanks.

Well, as I said before, 2100mhz is not supported for GSM! I can't put it more plainly. And also, just go on eBay and buy one, it's cheeper.
