Unhappy World Travel

Please Login to Remove!

I use the BB 8830, through Bell mobility. When in London England, I get phone service, hit and miss only. Email are received in batches every couple of days only. In Bermuda, I had phone service only except email upon arrival at the airport and then again when at the airport waiting for my plane. Regardless of where I travel in the world, the "World" Edition never works 100%, any suggestions?

If you travel a lot, my suggestion is to drop Bell and go with Rogers. The only way to get truly reliable world service is to have a GSM/UMTS service provider.

Barring that, if you are stuck with Bell for some reason, then ensure that your device is set to GSM only whilst traveling outside of Canada and the USA.
