Using the Droid X overseas [from the forums]
Do you travel internationally but have a CDMA (think Sprint or Verizon) non-"world" phone? Android Central Forums user jdbower has written up a great guide just for you. He details a trip to Tiawan in which he was mostly able to get by using his Droid X on open WiFi networks (he did have a world BlackBerry for email) but ran into a couple interesting issues along the way. In particular, he had some issues getting GPS to work while preventing his phone from connecting to a local network, which he ended up solving by telling the phone to not connect to any network that wasn't Verizon. For tons of other useful tips and observations, check out the article past the link. [Ebower via Android Central Forums]
