Never had a problem with missed calls. Currently used latest CM 11 by bubor. Never flashed baseband specifically, so assume it's default one.
BTW, I bought it for 175$ a year ago. Of course, it was bit used one, but 200$ for this phone now is overpriced, I guess. Just looked at aukro and found a new captivate glide for 150$ with free shipping to Ukraine from China.

You can buy i927 on polish analog of eBay - allegro.pl, but I'm not sure if they ship to other countries, you would have to ask. Price is about 200$ + 10$ shipping (might be expensive to ship abroad)

EDIT: At least one of sellers agrees to ship abroad and BTW allegro and aukro have same owner.
EDIT2: after reading comments i think they are shipping from china so it might take up to 2-months to ship it to you, so you should search for another shop.

Sent from my GT-I9070 using XDA Free mobile app
maybe http://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?...20140604113249 cheaper.

There are negative feedback on ebay too, so dont you trust ebay either?
You pay to aliexpress, and it releases your money to seller, when you click "received item".

it's not actually the site I have a problem with. The sellers don't have good ratings and reviews, and I didn't say ebay is trustworthy either... I just dont understand why they are all coming from china, and there are many people who didn't get refunds or even the products from the site

Maybe I'll wait until I or a friend of mine are in the Usa, I just don't wanna get ripped

Yes.. I live in Germany and have and can recommend the Glide
Works like a charme for me (based on sediROM v1.0)

I bought it on eBay in the US. Well even it is a risc but paid via PayPal and choosed the fastest shipment to get it in paypal protection time.

I do not know this seller here (I bought from another one) but you could take a look on this (eypecially the user rating ):
hxxp://ebay.com/itm/Samsung-SGH-I927-Captivate-Glide-8MP-Black-AT-T-Android-4G-Keyboard-Smartphone-/301011731256?pt=Cell_Phones&hash=item4615b28338 (replace the hxxp with http - sorry for that but XDA does not allow links for me)
if the above do not work search for the eBay item# 301011731256

You have other options like that of course when the seller do not deliver to Germany (the above does). You can use a import company which is very easy and not so expensive as one may thought. I haven't used that one here yet but I may need it in the next weeks to import a LG Optimus F3Q (nice phone but that is for my wife - I'm happy with the Glide). Take a look on them - again without any warranty but they seem to be trustworthy: borderlinx (as said sorry cannot paste direct URL)

You only need to ensure(!) that the package has a correct invoice available on the outer site(!) because otherwise it will get complicated at the duty!!!!

I bought it for 150 US $ plus 60 US $ delivery costs (sigh) plus (I believe) 20-30 for duty
If you want to have a current Android phone with physical keyboard and you can live without special Umlauts keys that phone is the best IMO.
