No, you have to get an unlock code from Motorola and it voids your warranty.

Why not just get the GSM Dev Ed and keep your warranty after you unlock it?

I bought the Dev edition and inside there's this piece of paper that says that after requesting the unlock code, it'll void the warranty, weird

NO one at ATT seems to know anything. I asked moto(numerous times) before I ordered and was told it's the "same phone" or that it "will work". No one seems to be able to tell me specifically if not having this band will adversely effect my ability to get service as I travel the country(US). The phone arrives wed and I'll post again with the results. After I update the APN settings(if needed) we'll see what happens. The only reason I opted for the GSM unlocked version is to be able to use PDA NET + to tether and use another carrier if I desire. (grandfathered unlimited data).

AFAIK, the 850MHz band is only used for 2G/3G, which is usable by the unlocked X. From my research, I don't see anyone with any plans to use LTE on that frequency.

Short answer: If AT&T or one of their roaming partners has service, you should be fine.

Another question:
Will I need to root the phone to use PDA net, or can u I just use native tethering on the GSM unlocked on the ATT network. ?? Thanks in advance.

You would not be able to use native tethering unless you pay for the tethering service to the best of my knowledge.

From what I remember of PDA.net from years ago was that it did not need root to function.

That was/is the original stance by Motorola. They got a bit of backlash and reversed the decision for the Dev devices only.

That was their old policy. Motorola has reversed themselves on that policy.
