This phone is Sprints version of the Droid Pro. From some brief testing it looks like this phone is NOT SIM locked. It recognizes my TIM (Italy) SIM and my US Tmobile SIM and does not ask for a Subsidy Unlock Code.
That said the phone will not work in the US for GSM voice or DATA. From the Driod Pro forums it appears that the Radio supports all 4 GSM voice bands as well as the same US and World 3G Data bands with the Iphone does.

Its devices are massively overpriced for what they deliver and the next one worth owning on AT&T won't be out till AUGUST. The iPhone now has push messaging and BBM-style chat. So now BB's only advantage is the keyboard and trackpad - a keyboard that's ergonomically fantastic but whose layout makes NO sense. Moto, please..give us what we need and get it on every carrier, esp. AT&T who has O
