    a great site to check for world wide travel is:

    gsmworld.com

    and then go to roaming section and it will tell you what the company is for the country and what band they work off of.
    DO OR DO NOT THERE IS NO TRY

    Re: US Carriers BLACKBERRY International Coverage list - Roaming

    I am just testing a new 7130e from Verizon. My understanding from the above is that I have "limitied" international roaming. Is there a better place to look for information about this? Obviously this isn't a GSM phone so GSM world doesn't really get me what I need. I'm not sure I'll be traveling internationally soon, but I recently went to Mexico with my 7100g and it worked fine! Thanks!

    Question Re: US Carriers BLACKBERRY International Coverage list - Roaming

    Does anyone have info on capabilities of the 7130e in Mexico? It is CDMA and EVDO but not GSM, correct? Can I enable International features and get data access? SMS or GRPS?
