If your Verizon Droid X has a SIM slot and a GSM radio that operates on the same frequencies used in the US, this should work perfectly well.

My understanding from a bit of internet research (including Motorola's website) is that the Droid X does not and is CDMA-only. If that's the case, your question is moot since SIMs are used only with GSM and the vast majority of CDMA devices do not have a GSM radio.

Check your manual to see if there's any mention of a SIM or a GSM radio. Take off the back and look for a SIM or a slot for one. Be sure you don't confuse a SIM with a microSDHC card. A SIM looks like a tiny credit card with one corner cut off and is usually printed in bright colors. A microSDHC card has notches and is almost always black.

Whether using a different SIM in a phone affects your contacts depends upon whether they're stored in the device memory (in which case it won't affect them) or on the SIM (in which case, of course, it will). I doubt 3.000 contacts will fit on most SIMs.

If you get a GSM phone to use with a TelCel Amigo SIM, make sure it's unlocked (not locked to a specific carrier) or that you get one specifically for TelCel (e.g., an Amigo phone from a TelCel shop).
