    I know this might sound stupid at first, but please hear me out. I am an At&t customer, and I want to replace my iPhone 4 with my amazing Droid X. I went to Dialer and dialed *#*#4636#*#* and it brought me to a special menu with phone info, battery info and a whole bunch of other stuff. Upon going to the Phone information page, I noticed there was a setting called "Select preferred network type". I clicked this list and it showed WCDMA only, GSM Auto (PRL), CDMA Auto (PRL), CDMA only, EvDo only, GSM/CDMA auto (PRL) and unknown. I selected GSM Auto (PRL) and I want to know if somehow I can get this to work on At&t. I have a Droid X classic 24GB.

    I dunno. I feel that if that were possible it would have been found out by now since the phone has been out for quite some time.

    Even if you can get it on AT&T's GSM network, you still wouldn't have a SIM card slot so you wouldn't be able to use the phone.

    no SIM card in the X = no GSM service...would take much more than a hack to pull that off....

    Droid X classic?

    You got the Droid X classic did you? I went with the Droid X limited edition. I almost went with the Spyder, but didn't like the look of the rag top.

    Classic? Limited? Why limit yourself so much. I got the SPECIAL GOLD Droid X. Has a 4 GHz Quad Core Processor, and the case is solid gold.

    Anyways, No I'm pretty sure its not possible.

    Silly AT@T folk... port your # over to big Red and feel the power of a real network.

    No way to do it without a SIM card, which the Droid X does not have.

    It doesn't even matter if it has a SIM card.

    It's the wrong chipset. CDMA radios cannot run on GSM networks.

    Nor does it have a GSM radio.

    That's not true in all regions. I'm in the north Texas area, and AT&T is just as good as Verizon in my experience. I have just as many, if not more, dropped calls with my Droid X as I did with my iPhone 3Gs.

    I also lost a significant amount of download speed as well. The Droid X is a good phone, but I'm underwhelmed by the network.

    You can go from VZW to MetroPCS, Cricket, and others. I think even Sprint. But not to AT&T.

    But if you want something like the X, The Atrix is similar and on AT&T.

    Listen up, you people..... Get the Droid X RT. It's smaller phone, 2.25" x 4.10" and only .325" thick. It comes with a 2750mA battery. But the best part.... it still has a 4.3in screen!!!! I don't know how they did it, but they did. Magic or something.....
