Stuck With Telus -> Which Model To Buy??

So I have the Milestone 1 with Telus and I have 2 years left of contract. I played with Bell's model which was amazing and I need to upgrade!

I see the Droid 3 (Verizon's model) unlocked on Ebay for reasonable prices, but still cannot find the Bell model online.

What's the best option for a model to buy so I can use on Telus with everything enabled (like data and voice etc)?


Please let me know!

Thanks

Both Verizon and Bell should work with Telus, as long as you unlock the GSM modem.

You better get the Bell one (XT860 4G). Verizon tampered with the GSM radio on the D3 to implement operators bans which, based on my very own Droid 2 Global experience, might not be the best experience you want. (I have D2G which I have had on both Rogers and Telus networks here, not without some issues)

So if I get the Bell version do I have to unlock it somewhere? Or can I buy this unlocked online?

Most online ones should work. I went with mobileincanada as they are lightning fast and have proven themselves to me over the years. Code was emailed to me in 15 minutes.
