    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.

    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

    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.
