    Wow, this is great. It is probably the best international calling deal I have seen so far. I wish it was available a few months ago when I had to make calls to the UK everyday for 4 months.

    I am attempting to get this on my BB 8900 as I write this, but for some reason their system doesnt accept my IMEI number.

    I will contact support later, and see if they can send the OTA to me manually. I will also report back once I have tested it out more.

    Good luck, Crysti. Do you have an international contact that you can call to try it out?

    Worked perfectl in my T-Mobile Dash. Decided to try it in my BBCurve 8320 with OS 4.5. Hung up at the Security Permissions. OS will not allow changes in the Security and Firewall that Packet 8 requires. Called T-Mobile [clueless to what I was talking about] but said that they had called RIM support who suggested hard pull. Clearly the software was upgraded to all the BB devices - why was it not tested with all the carriers and how does one get around it. It's a great service and rates are outstanding..but I'm stuck.
