    Hello all,

    I am contemplating getting a BBPP.
    The carrier ( Digicel Jamaica )purchased Z10 I have is an STL100-1 and am wondering if I would have any issues just buying an unlocked device and dropping in my sim?

    Apparently Digicel has some issues with unlocked phones that were on Verizon networks or this could be because it was not an STL100-1 device?

    Anyway just asking you tech heads out there whether you think I would have any network "compatibility " issues?

    Thanks Regards David

    As long as it's unlocked and the right variant to be compatible with your carrier's network types and bands, then yes you're fine.

    Just wait a few days and I'm sure someone will post a thread on the different versions of the Passport. That will help you find the right one.

    There shouldn't be any problems. The RGY181LW (SQW100-1, apparently) has all the bands the STL100-1 has, plus LTE bands too. I'm not sure what bands Digicel Jamaica uses for LTE, but if my memory serves me correctly, Caribbean carriers' networks are very similar to North American carriers' networks, so you should be covered for LTE as well.

    And since I can't resist...

    Passports of the Carribean?
    They were okay but I'm not a Johnny Depp fan.

    Okay sorry, had to get that out of my system!
