An Ever-Growing List of Compatible Palm Pre GSM Carriers

GSM logo If you've been holding off on your desire to import a SIM-unlocked Palm Pre from Germany - thanks to those worriesome compatibility issues - you hopefully won't have to do so for too much longer. dakis of the PreCentral forums has been putting together a list of those international carriers whose SIMs are confirmed compatible with the German Pre. So far, we know that nine carriers are fully supported, three are partially supported (no MMS) and three are completely incompatible. I've taken the liberty of reposting his list after the jump.

For my fellow Australians, your correspondent will be testing the four major networks here as soon as my Pre arrives "in 6-8 days".

Last Chance for the US

Mr. Rubenstein,
I would recommend getting a Pre 2.0 into the US GSM market in Q1 next year. I know I speak for many when I state I will never return to Sprint and CDMA has almost no utility outside the US. So please, for your loyal Palm customers...a GSM 2.0 Pre for the US market.
No GSM play then it's off to a new platform.
