    Hi,

    so I'm from Europe and I want to order some ~$150 Android phone (I like Motorola Atrix). I need unlocked phone so I can use it on my go-as-you-pay mobile network. But I'm so confused for two reasons:

    1. Amazon reviews are so messed up, like every single phone I have found has many 1-star and 5-star ratings so I don't know which I should opt for because I don't want to order a phone to find out that I need to ship it back for X reason
    2. anyone from Europe ever bought unlocked phone from Amazon.com ? Because it might not be unlocked, by some reviews.

    I don't know if I should trust reviews, because I have heard few times that Americans are so picky, no matter what you do, they will find a flaw.. so that might explain why some reviews are negative.

    Thanks and sorry for the long post

    Sometimes you'll get multiple sellers selling the same item under slightly different names etc, and Amazon will combine the reviews. So you could be reading a review from someone who left it under the seller they bought it from but Amazon just puts it all under this specific item. This is very common with books and other items. Hope that made sense.
