If the phone resolution were bad it would show up on the camera. Load high resolution pics and see the difference. Thia is the best phone in the market as of Today. Three cheers to motorola. They are really catching the pulse.

> In reply to PHONE SUCKS @ 2011-10-08 17:00 from TiA1 - click to readI never had problems with android Market. It is true, the phone is trying to connect on Sprint, but only when you turn it on and this was really annoying for me. But I found a fix for this: I root the phone and uninstalled the Sprint apps, and change the booting animation. Now it behaves as an unbranded phone and my impresion is that runs much better without Sprint apps. But remember: a phone is just a phone, you don't have to exagerate or to be so dramatic ;)

I think all motorola photon which sales on ebay are unlocked, that's for gsm band.
For Cdma, i'm sure it's locked. U need a spc code to unlock d cdma band, so u could use 3g evdo or 4g wimax. I'm living in indonesia, and lot of android seller offers motorola photon here, which is offcourse unlocked to.
I think this phone way better than sgs ii, coz of the flexibility to switch gsm and cdma band.
Here in indonesia, internet network are so poor. Local gsm provider couldn't give u fast connection at low price. However cdma provider could give me unlimited data plan for low price. So i think this phone is perfect for.me.
