If it is unlocked it should be that easy. I've used my unlocked Omnia2 in another country and that's how it worked. Be aware that, since you have a device from the UK it you won't get 2 band for data if you are on Bell or Telus. I think you will if you're on WIND but you have to double check.
Have fun with the new phone. I've thought of going that route but decided I like to be able to go in a store if I have a problem.
Thank you for the reply, I asked Clove (Where I am getting it from) if the frequencies were ok to use here. I quoted:
Frequencies 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
Frequencies 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
The reply was:
"The frequencies that you state are correct."
I also called them with the same question, Their answer was "We talked to Samsung and they assured us that the frequencies were correct".
Maybe I should be giving them another call, or just wait and see what happens when it arrives.
