Default prepaid sim card for storm for Aruba

Please Login to Remove!

I am going to Aruba next month and I am curious about these prepaid sim cards.
I have a 9530 so what would I do. Get the unlock code from Verizon and then I just get a sim card and remove the Verizon one put the new one in place and I am good to go? do I need to change any of the settings on the Storm itself
I was looking at this one that I found with google Aruba SIM Card - Prepaid cell phone service for travelers
and then I saw this one as well on EBAY Aruba Pre Paid GSM SIM Card $.17 to USA 45 minutes FREE - eBay (item 250417156127 end time May-08-09 14:53:40 PDT)
should I get one of the above or just grab something when I get there?
any others out there that anyone knows of?

and then when I get back just pop in Verizon sim and that is it?

And all you will have is Voice and SMS text. The BlackBerry data will not work without a BlackBerry Data Plan.

hrm. so not true. i go to china all the time and pop in a china telecom pre-paid SIM card with BB data. voda provides one in HK and india, and i know there are prepaid SIMs in dubai and seoul with BB data...of course, this might not be where this guy is traveling, but the point is that you can get prepaid SIMs with BB data. ask local carriers and see if there's anything available...
