However, I got it with GSM ALREADY UNLOCKED so I cannot tell you how to unroot it
But probably involve flashing chinese rom
So you have fully functioning GSM support? Does everething is working? 3g, HSPDA, sms, calls Friend of mine right now is in USA and will return back 29th of April, just thinking to ask him to buy the phone, but also need to be sure that I can unlock GSM feature.

Ofcoz, I am actually replying on the droid4 now
All things are working well with HSDPA, SMS and calls, even EDGE
But the lack of alt key make a little trouble when typing chinese
I wonder if the LTE is being supported by china mobile hk

I got it from a china auction website

I would like to post the info, any hot-key could take a screenshot in motoblur?
Previous key in milestone3 doesn't work here

And any way to map the 'alt key' back on the physical keyboard?

The info I gathered so far hinted the unlocking involve flashing another rom, *#*#2468#*#* and unlock the device with unlock code, but I got my phone unlocked out of box so I couldn't test it

i found this http://www.buyonsalecheap.com/motoro...act_p1190.html but it dose not look like a trustworthy site and its the only GMS Driod 4 i could find.

could you link to the site you got it from?

i dont know anything bout motoblur i have never owned a Motorola, but i do know you can take screens with the android SDK

Do not buy from that site. Its a scammers site. Not trustworthy at all.

@Disablewong I'm very curious. I too am waiting and trying to use the GSM radio on the Droid 4. Where did you get it? What rom do you use?

Do you know where I can buy an unlock code? I'm not a Verizon customer so they cannot help me. And I tried some 3rd party unlock sites, but none of them was able to generate an unlock code for me.

Thanks in advance.

There is a way to know if this device is a real Motorola Droid 4? I found some weird links about it[1]

VMU,

Which ones did you try? I want to try this one because of their success with Razr and Atrix. Not so sure about a ferund though when they do not succeed.

I tried mobile2mobile, networkunlockcodes, and unlockitnow.

I also found the site you mentioned. But before I contacted them before I place an order. If they can guarantee that they can unlock the Droid 4 I'll submit my imei.

Waiting for a reply.

Guys, will you expect the phone will work as GSM after unlocking? Or you will use it as CDMA?
