Default Heading to the UK

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone, first post here.

On friday i am headed to the UK for work. The folks at tmobile said since my Curve is a quad-band phone it should be ok as long as i got the international option activated. Seems a bit simple for me but i could be and probably am wrong.

Anything else i need to be concerned about? I am using the Opera mini browswer so i had to change my TCP setting to wap.voicestream.com. Does this need to change to work in the UK?

What about google or BB map applications?

Any advice appreciated

Hi.

Getting the international plan added on is the right thing to do to retain your BB services, although it might be a bit costly.

We have T Mobile here in the uk and as you will be paying to roam I assume it is ok for you to leave your apn settings alone. The apn settings for t mobile uk are different here.

Google is universal!! though we do have a google.uk. BB maps should also work on your data plan whilst here.

Might be a good idea to keep your data use to a minimum to avoid a huge bill when you get home.

Have a good trip!

I roam with Vodafone in the UK and it works very well.
