Default Going to SPAIN with BB TOUR

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I was wondering if anybody could steer me in a direction in regards to using my blackberry tour abroad. I'll be in Spain for 6 months and I wanted to get a local number, how do I go about doing so?

Also, is there a way I can change my phone's language to Spanish? Does BBM work if I don't pay for the internet option abroad? Let me know if somebody can help. Appreciate it.

You can purchase a SIM card locally, but it will have a different number. Should not affect your BIS email, though, since that is defined by your PIN/MEID which won't change.

If you have Spanish installed, then you can change it under Options -> Languages. BBM won't work unless you have BlackBerry data plan.
No longer a BES Admin, but it was fun while it lasted!
