Everyone at Verizon contradicts themselves so I'm nervous about the compatibility in Europe.. are there any BB users w/ an 8830 that knows this first hand? When you take the phone to Europe and it's "Roaming" how does that affect email? Internet? Is email considered part of the internet? What I'm scared of is everytime I get an email it will charge me $1.49 for a minute used of data. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
The 8830 requires a SIM card for GSM operation overseas.
There's a slot for the sim card in the battery compartment, to the left of the microSD card slot.

You should sign up with a Global plan from Verizon if you want to use your BlackBerry for voice and data overseas.

Without a SIM card from Verizon, your 8830 won't even function overseas for voice or data.
