Voice calls and sms will work fine, but you'll be subject to roaming fees. International data on a BlackBerry is the tough part. If you want email, bbm, etc, that is difficult and expensive.

You can also buy a pre-paid SIM card overseas and have your Verizon number forward all calls to that new number. There's usually a fee for forwarding calls (something like 10 per call) but incoming calls will come to your phone uninterrupted. Just confirm that when you buy the pre-paid SIM that sms is included. The pre-paid route is almost always the most cost-efficient way to use a phone overseas.
