| | Prepaid Simcard in a BlackBerry Torch
Please Login to Remove!
A few months ago I got myself a simlock free BlackBerry Torch working on the T-Mobile Network in the Netherlands with a BIS contract.
Now I see around me more and more operators T-Mobile / Vodafone introducing BIS services on their prepaid simcards.
In the past with my old Windows phone I used to purchase a local pre-paid simcard of the country where I travelled to and so i could use the internet and download my IMAP email.
Now I have the question that IF I get to travel with my BB and get a Prepaid Simcard that I install in my torch providing BIS service if my email etc. will work or not?
It often saves me a lot of money on my phonebill normally by using pre-paid simcards while travelling. Often I travel to Germany and there they also sell pre-paid simcards now with BIS now. If like a german simcard would work in my torch than that would save me a lot of money on my roaming internet (T-mobile NL charges 8,5 eur per mb).
Now i'm talking about europe but I think this is starting to become a worldwide trend.
