View Full Version : BBM in Costa Rica?

03-02-2009, 05:36 PM
I will be traveling to Costa Rica next month. I have been told by a few people that I can BBM without incurring any text messenging charges. I find this hard to believe but was wondering if anyone had any first hand experience. My service is through verizon.

Thank you!

Unless you are using an 8830 or 9530 Storm, which you're not based on your profile, you will not be able to use your Verizon phone period in Costa Rica.

If you have either one of these handsets, you will not incur text messaging charges, but you will incur data roaming charges, which are significantly higher than the cost of a text message in the long run.

I hope this helps.

Verizon will rent GSM Blackberries as well for a short trip.
