Used DX... How to figure out whether it is DXi..?
I am about to buy a used DX. The seller is in the US and tells me the unit is 3G/GPRS... Does this mean this is a DXi?
Anyone care to tell me if both the DX and DXi have 3G/GPRS connections, and if so, any means of differentiating them?
Evidently, the million $ question is to figure out whether a US DX with 3G/GPRS can do global wireless...

You should be able to tell from the serial number, but this may be a question to ask over on Amazon. I only have a K2, but mine is i. The beginning of the serial number tells you, but they're different on a DX. I've seen it posted over there, but sorry, don't remember which thread it was.

Just turn on TTS. If it talks in an Eastern European accent, it's a DXi.

Both have 3G, but only the Int'l DX is capable of international connection. The difference is determined by the first few digits of the serial number:
US DX = B004 (Sprint)
Int'l DX = B005 (AT&T)
