Dumb question: What is an international phone and where can I get one?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am on Verizon and am planning to get the Droid DNA for me and my girlfriend. I am fine with the black and red theme but my girlfriend said she wants to wait to see if new colors will come out. I told her that most likely there wouldn't be other colors as Verizon's droid theme has always been black and red. I then see leaked photos of an international version of the DNA that comes in black, white and brown as seen here:

If these are in fact coming soon in a couple months, I am sure she would definitely wait for a white one so my stupid question is. What is an international phone and where do I buy one? And after purchasing one, could I use it on Verizon and are there extra fees or such?

International phones support a larger spectrum of wireless signal, you would have to check into the specific model of phone to see if it supports the Verizon spectrum. You can usually find them online, or ebay, etc. but you will end up paying the unlocked price for the phone (i.e. generally goes for ~ $650 - 700)

Thanks.

I already plan on buying the DNA at full retail price because I am on Verizon's unlimited data plan so I am already willing to shell out that much.
