Intrepid in Canada?

Wonder if anybody know when it will be released into Canada? Currently I cant find any information on this.

Also, wonder if there is any custom ROM hacks I can use to buy Intrepid off eBay and make it work with my carrier?
Thks.

Re: Intrepid in Canada?

It's got a SIM card, so theoritically you should be able to get it to work with any carrier allowing you to use a SIM card. It can be unlocked just by entering your MSL code.. but then again, how would u get that without first activating with Sprint? hmm. lol

Re: Intrepid in Canada?

Quoting a paragraph from Mickey Pallaion at Wordpress - I cannot paste links until I get over 10 posts first

One of the nice things is the Global Network capabilities of the Intrepid. With both GSM/EDGE in a quad-band configuration, and single-band 2100mhz HSPA 3G, the phone can literally be used almost anywhere in the world. This feature makes the phone much more attractive to those that want to have CDMA service here in the US, but want to take their phone with them when they travel. The phone does come with a Sprint SIM card, but the phone can be unlocked to use with other SIM cards, and the phone will not recognize any other SIM cards until you do so. Unfortunately, you’re out of luck if you want to use your unlocked Intrepid on HSPA in the United States; neither T-Mobile nor AT&T employ the 2100Mhz frequency for U.S. 3G. So your Tour will be stuck on 2.5G EDGE if you decide to unlock and use here in the US.

Anybody know which provider in Canada uses 2100Mhz to get 3G?
I am not sure what kind of speeds I will get with Canadian Carrier using GSM? EDGE? HSPA? CDMA? Are they all available? Which is fastest, etc??
