    I posed this question in another thread and was reassured that if I did buy my niece a Galaxy Nexus from the Play Store it would indeed work when she goes back home to Ireland.

    I have a few questions and am hoping you guys can help me with.

    1) When I buy the phone I would need to get her a Straight Talk sim card ?, as it is a new phone would ST populate a # for the device?

    2) What happens then to that # when she goes back to Ireland?, cell phone numbers there of course are different


    Example

    082 Paging services (Eirpage)
    083 3 Ireland
    085 Meteor / eircom Mobile (MVNO)
    086 O2 Ireland (formerly Esat Digifone)
    087 Vodafone Ireland

    So, when she goes home she can just buy a similar sim card to ST and again a new # will be populated or can she transfer her current vodafone # to the Nexus


    thanks for all the help.

    Unlocked GSM she should just be able to pop in a local SIM card and away she goes.

    At least in the UK that's how it goes...
