HTC Droid DNA to ship with GSM radios unlocked
The HTC Droid DNA is now available for pre-order if you are an eligible Verizon Wireless customer or are planning to make the jump. Those of us on networks other than Verizon may want to add this to our Christmas lists, because according to DroidDog the Droid DNA is shipping fully unlocked and ready for the carrier SIM of your choice.
As of lately Verizon had been marketing a handful of their phones add world phones; meaning they are able to use SIM cards from other countries, because the phones have the proper wireless bands in them. Until now, most of these worlds phones did not debut with this type of access, despite always having the capability, but a few months after release a software patch would unlock the service to classify it a world phone.
The source points out the following bands are present on the Droid DNA and as long as you punch in the correct Access Point Name (APN) paired with the correct SIM card the phone will work on your non-Verizon carrier.
Bands: 850/900/1900/2100 MHz
We will certainly confirm this when we get our hands on a demo unit since HTCSource authors are on T-Mobile and AT&T.
Would you be willing to pay full price for the best phone on the market?
