Verizon Blocks AT&T on Droid 2 Global

In an attempt to discourage customers from taking their Droid 2 to AT&T, Verizon has locked down the wireless bands 850Mhz and 1900Mhz on their latest world phone. Although Verizon is marketing the Droid 2 as a global phone, they obvously feel their network is strong enough in the US to omit. However, T-Mobile will still work. AT&T doesn’t offer a comparable Android device so this only makes sense for them to do so. I guess Verizon learned their lesson with the black berry storm. several people were actually able to unlock the storm and use on AT&T and T-Mobile. Band Blocking FTW
