8800, I'm travelling to france
I'm going to France for two weeks in April. I have T-Mo, with an 8320. I am scared (seriously. crackberryaddict..) about not having my cell phone work. I do have the wi-fi and everything in order to check emails, but I am interested in more information about actually having cell service, and whether or not I will recieve the pushed e-mails, text messages, phone calls, etc.
I know that you can purchase Quad-Band phones for international travel, and there's actually an 8800 for sale locally on CraigsList that i might purchase if i have enough information about all this.
Would buying that device allow me service when i travel? if not, is there anything i can do to make my 8320 work over there?
Thanks in advance..
Happy monday :-)
Your 8320 should work in Europe. You will have to add the International Plan on and get charged a per minute roaming fee if you are going to use the phone.
Buying a used BB can be tricky. Lots of pitfalls.
Did you think about getting your 8320 unlocked and using a French SIM card?
If you want to get on wi-fi, go stand in front of an expensive hotel
to get a signal. Worked for me in Paris.
By the way, the French pronounce wi-fi, wee-fee.
Have fun and tell us how it goes and/or PIN me when you are there.

Unlocking is what I'd recommend as well... Cause that waht I've done and it works fine with the int'l Sim card...
