    Hello all!

    I know that the Verizon 8X is factory unlocked, and is usable on AT&T and T-Mobile in the States, but what about England? I'm going to London in a couple of months and am curious if this device has any of the bands needed for a prepaid SIM in the UK. If so, what prepaid carriers would work?


    Thanks!

    I'm not in the UK, but I checked and I'm 99.99% certain that it will work just fine (on GSM/UMTS anyway). The Verizon 8X is quadband UMTS (850/900/1900/2100) and all UK networks use either only 2100 or 900/2100 for HSPA. That said, I'm not at all familiar with their prepaid options, so you'll have to wait for someone else to address that =/
