    Hey hey,
    BB user here (8707G) also on Globe network. Well am glad to see other pinoys here (and abroad) on BB. Haay all my contacts so far are friends from the US.

    So add me up my PIN is 2507c473

    By the way any of you got your respective billing? If you are receiving 10 emails a day, online at YM for almost 6 hours on standby, how much was your gprs charges? I just got mine activated kasi

    Just wondering, I live here in Sydney and I am a Filipino.

    When I go back for a visit, would it be better for me to roam with my Vodafone AU Pearl or use my local sim? I already have a Smart & Globe prepaid sim which are both roaming here in Sydney. Can I use them or not because they are prepaid?

    cheers!

    jho51e: if you can use smart/globe sims on your phone, i think it would be cheaper if you use your local prepaid sims, just advise your australian contacts to call/sms you at your globe/smart numbers while you are here. otherwise, you're stuck to using your vodafone sim.
    if your pearl accepts other network sims, you can use the prepaid sims for text/calls but not data.

    Thanks for replying!

    My Pearl is unlocked so I will be able to use my prepaid sims. But you mentioned this will only be for talk & text. If I wanted data as well, I will not be able to use my prepaid sim?

    bangus: I dont think you can use VF prepaid for data.. I changed one of my VF prepaid to a Mobile Email On Account plan.. VF separates Data and Mobile Email (BB service).. Dont need to have a data plan to use a BB but you will need to have a Mobile Email plan..

    But you can roam with VF prepaid.. just need to give them a call to set it up before leaving..

    Reading the posts, I guess I can't use my Smart or Globe prepaid sims for BIS.. :-( I will just need to roam my VF..

    Hello Jho! I think Globe can provide a data plan. By the way, how long would you be staying?
