8/19: Motorola PHOTON™ Q 4G LTE has Arrived

Wizard

Re: Motorola PHOTON™ Q 4G LTE, Coming Soon

I am sure this will sell for people who need physical keyboard.

I won't be replacing my Photon 4G with the Q.

Embedded SIM?!? I don't get that one.

Nice to see an unlockable bootloader.

Thanks, halcyoncmdr!  I knew I was on battery saving mode, but didn't know being able to download was part of that.  You learn something new everyday.

With an embedded SIM, does this mean this phone is unlocked?  So if we need to use the new Photon overseas, we need to go on Sprint International plan? 

I like the fact the current Photon is unlocked, so we can swap out SIM cards to have a local cell # temporarily.

My point exactly Dave.

Using local SIM when traveling saves you a lot of $$

I really don't know what Sprint is expecting and I am not carrying 2 phones when I travel.

May be I won't renew my contract and get a GSM phone with prepay.

With embedded SIM, you have to pay Sprint rate when using it overseas. Something like $4.00 or more a minute for a phone call where you can get local SIM for maybe $0.20 a minute

!!!! Bad move on the "non-removable SIM"  !!!!!......

Guess I will keep my original Photon that allows me to put in any SIM card I want when traveling outside the USA.....that works fine.
