    Will my T-Mobile Nexus One work in Italy with an Italian SIM crd?

    Hi. I'm in the U.S. and have the T-Mobile version of the Nexus One with a T-Mobile SIM card. I plan to leave the SIM card home and go to Italy for a while. If I get an Italian, pre-paid SIM card, once I'm over there, will it work with their local service?

    I know the ATT and TMobile Nexus One's listen on different frequencies and I thought the ATT one had a wider range, that's why I'm questioning.

    Running a nightly of Cyanogen.

    I don't see why not. It's unlocked and it is set to use the European 3G frequencies (unlike the AT&T version).

    A friend of mine in Europe owns this same phone and he travels all over Europe with it and has no problems whatsoever.

    Make sure the sim card you buy has the same bands as the T-Mobile USA Nexus One has and you're good as gold.

    From Wikipedia:

    As of March 16, 2010, there are two versions of the Nexus One.[70] Both versions of the Nexus One cover most major [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GSM"]GSM[/ame] and [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3G"]3G[/ame] providers in the US, Europe and Asia. On both phones, the GSM radio frequencies covered are 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, and 1900 MHz. The original Nexus One also came along with [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UMTS_frequency_bands"]UMTS frequency bands[/ame] 1 (2100 MHz), 4 (1700 MHz), and 8 (900 MHz),[71] allowing it to access 3G throughout Europe, as well as on T-Mobile USA and [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WIND_Mobile"]WIND Mobile[/ame] and [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobilicity"]Mobilicity[/ame] and [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Videotron"]Videotron[/ame] in Canada. The second version of the Nexus One supports [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UMTS_frequency_bands"]UMTS frequency bands[/ame] 1 (2100 MHz), 2 (1900 MHz), and 5 (850 MHz), allowing it to access 3G in most of Europe, as well as on AT&T Mobility in the USA and [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogers_Wireless"]Rogers Wireless[/ame], [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fido_Solutions"]Fido Solutions[/ame], [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell_Mobility"]Bell Mobility[/ame], and [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telus_Mobility"]Telus Mobility[/ame] in Canada.
