HTC Ozone XV6175
Questions, Sim Lock? GPS type? 3.5mm Jack, Data Port
It has a Sim Card for Global Use.
Is it locked so I can not have a local pay per minute card when traveling overseas? or Can I use my Verizon card for my US number (with high roaming rates) and have the ability to use a foreign sim card for a local number and low local rates?
Can this operate in stand alone mode (no service area) and access local maps, or Google Map where data is avialable, or is it tied to network location services and paying for carrier based nav services?
Is the headphone Jack the same size as most MP3 players and the iphone 3.5mm or is it the older 2.5mm size or worse some proprietary connector?
Is the charging port either the common mini USB or the new world standard Mic...
With regard to you question about domestic GSM frequencies, sorry, can't answer that. My phone only has the two oversees GSM frequencies. I have used my phone successfully in 3 countries with local prepaid SIMs. Good luck
The ozone uses a non-standard headphone jack. Later versions of HTC phones will have a 3.5 port, but sadly not this version.
If you get an unlock code from Verizon for the GSM side, then you could use prepaid SIMs while overseas. Domestically... HTC insists it supports GSM 850 and 1900, which would be intended to support South American roaming. However, unlike all other Verizon phones with quad-band GSM, this one has not been approved by the FCC for GSM mode. I'm not sure why that's the case, but technically it means it would be illegal to use it domestically in GSM mode.
