    Motorola Defy XT

    I was hoping for a bigger screen and faster processor. I think it is decent but I'll wait to see what their next phone is.

    This phone is a CDMA device that will use Sprint for cellular.

    I wonder if it will still have the GSM capabilities as well as the CDMA capabilities? True world-phone?

    If this phone had a keyboard I *might* consider it, but due to the fact that I already have basically the same phone with a keyboard (The Samsung Epic), I really don't see why I should downgrade. $19 a month is nice, but a 2+ year old phone is not...

    Positive: It seems to be a wold phone. Well done.
    Negative: A REALLY old o/s

    I guess 3.7", 1GHz and gingerbread isn't too bad. I was hoping for a little more though.

    I didn't see this coming. It looks like this phone was never on Sprint. Maybe there was a CDMA version produced for Latin America but unless I missed it, this CDMA version is being made exclusively for RW.

    If that's true, I wish they had used that effort on a different phone.

    There may be GSM models but since Sprint is the cell fall back this is a CDMA phone, opened mine up ( defy dual band) and there are no slots visible for a sim card

    Don't for get Sprint plays games with SIM card stuff. Example the new Galaxy Note II on Sprint has both cdma and quadband gsm wireless, but the Sprint gsm SIM card is buried in the phone leaving NO possibility of using your own SIM card when travelling overseas. So Sprint has history of not offering GSM open slots.
