Im from india my cousin is getting droid x from nyc.Can i use it with a simcard and how.Thanks
droid x is CDMA only. it does not use a sim card.
So there is no way i can use it in my country?
Can u suggest me some other phone as good as droid x i can buy.Which will work with a simcard like iphone
Why would you post something like that without the slightest hint of research?
To the original poster:
SIM cards are used for GSM frequencies.
It looks like India has some CDMA infrastructure and operates on the 800 MHz band, which the Droid X operates on. So it's possible that you can use it, but you'd have to speak to a CDMA service provider to figure out how to allow the phone onto their network.
For instance, in the US, I call Verizon and give them the ID of my phone, and they mark it as my phone in their network. You would have to do something similar.
At&t and T-mobile use SIM cards. I'm not sure if they are fully compatible in your country but they both have great Android devices.
Suggest me any as good as droid x under at&t or t-mobile.
AT&T has the captivate Samsung Captivate (TM) Cell Phone - Wireless from AT&T
its a decent phone.
If you're looking for a "high end" smart phone then you can look at the Samsung Galaxy S phones for both companies...At&t has the iPhone 4 as well...T-Mobile also has the G2. There are a lot of good Android phones on both carriers...Just make sure they are fully compatible in your country (even though they are GSM).
You could use it as a PDA over wifi. Not sure if India gets the full android market tho
Thanks i guess captivate is the best option..thanks for all the feedback by the way..
You're right and I apologize to OP. But it is impossible to use the dx with a sim card so I didn't lie. I shouldn't have posted an answer tho without looking into it more. Good luck getting it verified on a network there. I suggest contacting any cdma carriers there and asking if they can activate a cdma phone with the hex or id number.
