Wink BB Pearl in Paris, France

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all,
Just got back to the states last night, love the new look on the site here. Spent a 2 weeks in Paris, the the 8100 Pearl worked flawlessly. Aside from a few call errors, every call I placed in Paris and back to the states worked great with the same quality as it is here back home. Just a little FYI to users going abroad!

Although, TMO's international rates are another thing. 99cents a minute. arg! and $15/MB ! small price to pay. Great to be back!

I love Paris.

I just spent two weeks in Monterrey, Mexico. My pearl worked flawlessly.

Curious - did you experience a service outage on Easter Sunday (April 8)? All of our Rogers users who were in France for Vimy commeration events were out of service for the whole day, and I still haven't had a good explanation from Rogers, though local service providers were fine. Something to do with international network connex...

Wow...going to Bali next month. Hadn't looked into roaming costs there. That's way high! Guess I'll have to talk a lot less on this trip.
