Now that we know the O2 (Germany) Pre does indeed work on some international networks, I thought I'd start a thread where we can collect some info on that.
Someone posted a list over at infocenter. However, I doubt it's for real: http://www.palminfocenter.com/forum/...gs-db3-t46893/ Swisscom's on there and that provider definitely isn't supported at the moment (tested it myself).

Important info: while the list was / is being compiled to the best of my knowledge, I can't personally verify all the entries. So they're without any guarantee for completeness or correctness. Also: the list is only valid for O2 (Germany) Pres. Reportedly, devices sold in Ireland and the UK behave differently.

Added Sunrise Switzerland (supported). Read on several forums that Sunrise is fully supported.

Once my Pre arrives, I'll check which Australian providers it works with.

I might buy a Pre on Halloween as I go to see Depeche Mode in Oberhausen. If I do I'll let you know whether it will work on Dutch provider KPN.

Mine should be arriving this week too (from Germany to Australia) so I will test and report back. If my Telstra sim does not work I have an O2 Germany sim arriving and also have a Vodafone Greece sim as well. Hopefully I can get through the activation obstacles with one of these sims on hand.

I'm sure one of them will work. My O2 SIM apparently doesn't have roaming enabled, though - might have to get that set up

To those who have reported their findings before and to those who are about to: could you also comment on whether MMS works or not?

I just found out that for Sunrise Switzerland, MMS doesn't work while data + voice are no problem. Not that I care much about MMS (this thing does e-mail, after all :-) but to some people it might be important.

As reported by pattersson in this thread: Official getting a simlock-free (GSM) Pre thread, all countries - post #81 (sorry can't link yet), it seems like everything works with TDC (don't know if it's Telmore or Just TDC), and everything except data works on the 3 network in Denmark. Perhaps pattersson could elaborate, so this list could be updated?

How about Sonofon and Telia in Denmark? Anyone?

lol ... do you have any other SIMs?


I've already ordered by German Pre and will test its functionality on the Hutchison 3 Network here in Oz!

Oh, and Dakis, please add Vodafone UK to the list of supported. I got an e-mail back from Expansys UK (who I purchased my German Pre from) and they have told me that they put a Vodafone UK Sim in and it works perfectly ... this was after I already bought the phone ... just in case you're thinking they just said that to get the sale

Also check this thread: http://forums.precentral.net/palm-pr...-palm-pre.html

It has a theory to predict whether your SIM will work or not.
