You need to subscribe to "roaming" service. There is another way: get your phone unlock and when you get in German, use German sim card.

You need to have Int'l roaming on your line, I take mine to France and it works great.

I believe that international roaming service is free to have added. Obviously, the roaming charges and data charges are not free, though. Just call AT&T and tell them you are travelling and they will turn it on for you.

The relative low price (20/month) of Tmobile's International BB email is probably the only reason I am still staying with TMO. I travel internationally a few times a year and it's nice to have this feature turned on only for the time I need to travel and it's prorated too.
