    UNBELIEVABLE!! (That's from the Droid's owner's manual).

    "Quick start: Wi-Fi
    Find it: Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks
    > Wi-Fi settings
    Note: Your phone's Wi-Fi features and power levels
    are not allowed for outdoor operation in France. To
    avoid unlawful interference with radio signals, do
    not use the Wi-Fi features in France unless you are
    indoors."

    welcome to 2009, most European countries have that law, but seriously, no one abides by it. It's like the "no smoking within 100 feet of building" law, when people are smoking at the front door. no worries

    ah, so it's not just France. I hadn't heard of that rule until a few moments ago.

    yeah man , its BS. they use a lot of diff radio signals in europe, including 802.11 A, B, and G for security purposes such as cameras, data transfer, and other encrypted means of transportation, so the EU states you can't use it outside, but they would never have proof. you could say you were using your coverage and not wifi before they even ask you what you're doing, and its more of a "cover my ***" type of rule just in case EMS or police don't get to a call on time due to "radio integrity loss" due to civilians...blah blah.

    cool that you found it though, not many people know that.

    The truly shocking thing here is that someone actually read the manual.

    The purpose of this law is not to interfere other signals, thats it. Maybe they have some signal that are being used for security communication under government.
