    I just ordered an unlocked UK Pre 3 on Amazon:

    Amazon.com: HP Pre 3 - UK version (Unlocked), UMTS, GSM/EDGE, 8GB, Black, QWERTY Smartphone: BrilliantStore

    Had been waiting for a Pre 3 since February, and just got my $150 TouchPad, so I really wanted a Pre 3. How are people liking the Pre 3 running here on AT&T? How is call quality? Data speeds? etc. Thanks in advance!

    I had no idea that there was an unlocked version for the US. I feel very foolish, lol. Just contacted the seller on Amazon and they also are selling the non-UK unlocked, hopefully they'll change it before it ships. Thanks again!

    if they refuse to swap it just return it.. u'll get hit with "All returned items are subject to a 15% restocking fee if the return is not a result of our error or non-defective products."
    but you'll make up the restocking fee by buying the ATT unlocked pre 3 16 GB off ebay

    I'm using an unlocked UK Pre3 on AT&T and it works fine. Don't sweat it.

    It will work fine, except if you live predominantly in an area that makes heavy use of the 850 MHz band. The EU version swaps the North America centric 850 band for the more worldy 900 MHz band.

    There's also the matter of 8 GB vs. 16 GB...

    I have the unlocked UK Pre3 on AT&T also and it works great. Based on what I heard the UK Pre 3 does not have the right antenna to get 4G speed on AT&T, but you will get 4G when in the UK.

    That's a great tip, I'll try it.
