Yes, so pick this up, throw in a T-Mobile SIM, and you have your EVO that works pretty much everywhere in the world. It's not worth HTC's time/money/effort to make a true world phone, the only people who buy those in quantities that count are businesses, and businesses still aren't buying a ton of Androids. My world phone is still a POS Blackberry Bold 9650. It handles all of my talk/text while my EVO 4G does everything else any time I'm near wifi. I assume I could install a PDANet-like app on the BB to share it's data to my EVO, but I'd rather just avoid eating up that much International Data anyway.
