    ElCamino: I did upgrade to the latest version (8830EFS_PBr4.2.2_rel271_PL3.0.0.67_A4.2.2.148.exe ). How do I unlock the SIM? As for getting to work in Japan, I will wait and see. Thanks.

    By installing the update it will unlock the SIM which then you can use any GSM SIM but not U.S. GSM. After reading takeshi link it shows that the 8830 will not work in Japan. The link I found showed the 8830 as one of the phones that would work but it will not work. But now that its unlocked you can use any prepaid GSM SIM in other countries with the 8830 and it will work.

    At least for Verizon, one needs the SIM unlock code before it is truely an "unlocked" GSM phone irrespective of the latest software update.
