I´m in Spain and have my Motoroloa Droid Razr Maxx and was told that upon arrival in Spain, that my phone was already equipped with International-global communication whatever it´s called....and that I´d be able to immediately make calls and texts and access wifi. To be sure, I went ahead and purchased Global Internet for when there was no wifi available since my phone is my main tool for communication on this trip. However, when i landed in Madrid, the phone will not find a signal. It´s as if it was never activated, something I asked about to the >Verizon rep....and she assured me that my model of phone was already ready for global talk and internet access. IT IS NOT. I need someone to help me with this RIGHT THIS MOMENT. I´m at an Internet cafe. I need help NOW.
I believe that the DROID Razr Maxx needs the ICS update before it would be global ready. Beyond that, I'm not familiar with the process of ensuring the phone will work overseas in a GSM network.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
