I m living in germany. I have asked the Best Buy Guyz (ofcourse in US) and they told me that the Nexus S wouldnt work on 3G networks in germany.
The Nexus S specs say that it operates triband 900/1700/2100. And here in Germany carriers use 2100 band. This means it should work.

Is it a case of lack of knowledge or am i missing something? It would be great if someone could help me on this.

If you buy an unlocked Nexus S Phone from Best Buy at full price it should work in Europe without any problem. Just stick in a new SIM card and you should be ready to go.

I also bought my Nexus S from Best Buy and had it shipped to me here in Berlin. It works, trust me :)

However, the Nexus S is about to go on sale in Germany and other EU countries, so you might want to consider waiting some.
