| | Frequent Int'l Traveler - Sprint 8830 or Switch Carriers
Please Login to Remove!
Hi all. This is my first post to this forum. I travel between 1-2wk/month to the UK. I'm currently on Sprint using a Treo 650. Since it doesn't work overseas, I have cheapy UK Virgin phone I use just for calls + texting. For emails, I have to rely on the laptop. Well, my contract is over and want to get either the 8830 or 8800 (pending carrier) and consolidate phones. My questions are:
* if overseas with the 8830 and SIM card, will I still get my emails etc (e.g., just like if I was in NYC) or will I be stuck with basically just local phone/text usage, local # and no contacts - basically like having my other Virgin phone. Obviously, if I have a TMobile/AT&T phone, it would work like normal in the UK. But it would be great to have get local rates but still have the blackberry function just like back @home.
* If I switch carriers, who has overall better service in the NYC area - TMobile or AT&T? If asked friends on both and get mixed responses.
Thanks a lot!
