    Because I'm in Canada, and it's driving me nuts. Seriously considering going back to an iPhone, if for no other reason than that I can walk into a store and buy one.
    I can't even purchase an unlocked M8 at a Microsoft store. And they have no knowledge of whether or not they will receive it.
    I want that phone so bad, but nobody wants my money lol. The only one available is the single only listing on eBay, and he's asking over $800. Supply and demand I guess. But I'm not paying over $800 for a phone with an obnoxious carrier logo stamped on the back.
    Sigh.

    This is what happens when there is a carrier exclusive. Plus also it probably does not support the LTE bands your carrier supports so you would be stuck using it in GSM. Once the AT&T version is available, it's more likely to be compatible provided you can have it unlocked, plus you should be able to get it for a more normal price.

    It supports GSM 4G in the settings. Not sure if that's good enough though.

    I think this phone will come to Canada, unlike the Icon/930. It will probably be like in December though.

    Since there's talk (i.e. rumour) of international release for this phone, I would also imagine it will come to Canada. The ATIV S was available across all major carriers (minus WIND though my ATIV S works splendidly with it), so it's possible that this phone could be available to all three, if not four. This is, of course, assuming Canada will ever get the device.

    I wouldn't purchase the Verizon phone anyway. People in this forum (HTC and others) have reported being unable to change MMS APN settings. If you really want this phone, you might be better off waiting for the AT&T version.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    This is working exceptionally well for me on T-Mobile US, except that I can't change the MMS APN so MMS isn't working at all. It gets voice, SMS, 3G, HSPA+, and LTE with T-Mobile, though.

    You should probably be seeing that AT&T version in the not too distant future, but GSM mode works out of the box on the VZW version, so check your local network frequencies and see if it will work. If you can live without the MMS thing, it should be good to go on at least 3G in most areas.

    It's definitely frustrating! I actually ended up buying an orange 930. My 8X still doesn't have 8.1.1... I don't see their market share getting better anytime soon, not enough to make HTC care about ensuring their phones can update. So my new 930 comes in the mark on Tuesday!
    Plus that camera... Oh, that camera.

    It all depends if it supports the frequencies in the area its used.
