A relative is going to US soon and will buy a phone for me to use with GSM networks in Brazil(I dont care about using it on GSM networks in US). I could find boxed units of droid 4 for $179 on ebay, so I'm considering it due to high hardware specs with relatively low price. I also found some units of the same phone for $350 when I searched only for unlocked phones.

I've read in another thread that after flashing ICS its possible to use this phone with gsm networks outside US, my question is: Does this apply only to the $350 unlocked phones or I'm good with the $179 version of the phone? What does the $350 version has that the $179 doesn't?

Thanks in advance.

Yes but , with ICS update or Jelly bean the xt894 it's already unlocked...all xt894 was unlocked after ICS'll fine if you buy the $179 just be sure it isn't damage
