    Hey there

    I need a recommendation

    I'm looking into buying a 4.3 inches cell without contract that I can use with my Sprint contract. But I'd like a phone that I can use with any other company (in the UK specifically) in the near term.

    so is there any phone on the market that can offer option such as ?

    is there any phone in the near future (before end of summer) that potentially could offer that flexibility ?

    if Sprint/CDMAs are the big issue, which US company offers phones that are easily transferable with another service abroad ....


    Thanks

    The Motorola droid 2 global and the Motorola droid pro are both world phones. Or you can get any AT&T phone and it should work abroad as AT&T uses GSM unlike Sprint and VZW who both use CDMA

    I don't think so I believe it only has CDMA and LTE radios. You will need something with GSM radios

    Yes, the UK is gsm, and the only gsm carriers in the US are tmobile and at&t. You would need to get with one of those carriers is you want a phone that works in both places.
