Hello!
As a canadian buyer I plan to buy a Droid X on eBay (and then unlock it and use it instead of my iPhone). I asked Bell if it was all right to do that, and they just told me that the phone have to be HSPA compatible if I want to use it on their network.

So here is the question : Is the Droid X supporting HSPA?
I've searched on Motorola's web site but I'm not even sure of what I'm supposed to look at! And it looks like Google can't help me for that...
I read somewhere that Bell uses 800/1900 band and the Droid too, does it means that everything is ok?

Thank you!
Also I'm sorry if some of my sentenses looks strange, I need a bit more of practice before being bilingual :)

Thanks (for both post hah!)!
Oh but I'm so disappointed... Is there any US phone that use GSM technology? There's nothing interesting here in Canada... :( (Tell me if I need to start a new topic for that)

OP if you have any questions about any other phones please feel free to visit that phones section in the forums. If you have a question that hasn't already been answered then start a thread there about it.

Thanks.

The Atrix is looking like THE GSM phone to have right now. Unless LG announces the 2X soon.

Often the Motorola Verizon phones get a GSM counterpart called the Milestone - but these are typically a bit behind the times. If you're enamored with the X specifically there are rumors of the Milestone X coming along - but if you just want a high-end 4.3" form factor phone there should be a bunch more to choose from that would be better supported and with the latest technology.

In the US AT&T and T-Mobile are the big GSM carriers, but in Europe the vast majority should work. Just make sure you check that the bands are compatible before you actually write the check :)

Thank you all!
The Atrix is way too expensive, I'm a student so I can't spend $800 on a phone... And I want a SD card!

I'll start a new topic in the "General Help" forum, if anyone want to help me to chose the right phone, you're all welcome hah! :)
Thanks for all of your answers and advices!
