So let me get this straight...I arrive in Europe, use the Sprint-provided SIM card to get email, etc., then pull that SIM card out and put in a 3rd party sim card to make calls? Seems like quite a bit of hassle to me. And, when the Sprint SIM card is in the phone, calls can come into my phone at the Sprint int'l. roaming rates. The only way to avoid the charges is to not answer the calls.

Am I missing something?
