Has anyone used their Galaxy Nexus in Europe?

Verizon Tech support told me that I could, but i wanted to confirm with you all.  Can i only use the data over there?  or can i also get voice?  I need to order a new phone for work and I'd like to use this, however i travel to China and EU. 

Any first hand feedback would be great, but i'll take any comments.



Re: Has anyone used their Galaxy Nexus in Europe?

Europe runs primarily on GSM technology which is not compatible with Verizon's CDMA technology. To use a Verizon phone in Europe you'd likely have to have a "world phone" which would contain both CDMA and GSM radios. Although I love the Galaxy Nexus and it should work in Asia, you'll have a tough time in Europe.

You might want to consider the upcoming Galaxy S III, which has both CDMA and GSM radios. Preorders start tomorrow, the device will likely be out later in June or sometime in July. This will probably be your best bet for a great phone that can work anywhere in the world, aside from the iPhone 4S.
