    Does Pearl work in Sweden

    Advertisement



    Hey all,

    I am taking a trip to Sweden next month and Cingular (AT&T) tells me my account is setup to make calls in Sweden with International Roaming. But does my Blackberry Pearl actually work there? Does noyone know?

    Yes

    HERE is a link to the Vodaphone subsidiary's coverage in Sweden, just one of the companies partnered with Cingular/AT&T.

    So the deal is that if they have GSM I am good to go? No frequency issues?

    Not with the Pearl, no.

    Furthermore, for Intl Roaming, you're going to be paying about $1.29 a minute for calls in Sweden (.99 per minute with the $5.99 per month 'World Traveler' feature installed on your account).

    And a further question is: how expensive is GPRS-roaming if this is not covered by your plan.

    ALOT!!

    I've traveled thru various parts of Europe including Sweden and never had an issue with my phone service and was not charged any roaming fees. However I spent 4 days in California and was hit with $90 in roaming charges. So the fees could be high.

    Not sure if Cin/ATT are like TMO but make sure you have your international calling feature activated BEFORE you travel outside the states. Otherwise you might have issues.

    Enjoy your trip.

    If you're going to be there for a while, unlock the phone and get a new SIM card for a local service -- will save you money that way. However, as far as I know (I have T-Mobile), it will work with international roaming and Blackberry service (if you have the data plan) will work just fine as well. I just spent two weeks in Europe and it worked like a charm -- in fact, the coverage in France and the Netherlands was so much better than in the States.
