Moving to America with my trusty DHD

    Ok, so I'm moving to America in a few weeks. West Palm Beach to be exact, and I was just wondering if any American users here could tell me if the networks out there do sim only contracts like they do here in the UK?

    Been looking on Google and can only find pre paid sim cards.

    Also, regarding mobile internet/3g, if I do put an American sim card in my DHD is it a case of just finding out and entering the APN settings or will it be a bit more complicated because my phone's from the UK? It's branded and the contract was originally taken out with Vodafone but I can put any sim card in it and it works.

    Oh and anyone from West Palm? What's the best network for coverage etc?

    Sorry for all the questions. I just don't want to have a smart phone with out all the smart capabilities of it for too long and as we all probably are, I'm addicted to my phone lol.

    Thanks in advance if anyone can answer any of the questions!

    Can't say about the SIM Cards etc, but according to the spec page, it supports both CDMA and GSM so I think you'll be fine.

    Yeah as u say if it accepts any uk sim then the american ones will work fine

    you would just stick the sim in and get the apn and message settings etc

    I would just contact the network you get over there and tell them your situation and ask them about sim only contracts and see what they say

    at least then your prepared for going over :)

    phone companies in the states offer phones at a great discount or offer them for free when signing up for a 2year contract. you maybe able to get a better phone. research Verizon, ATT or Tmobile. each phone company carries certain phones.
