I'm new to all of this but Verizon's version of the 8830 works in the US on the "normal" verizon network. But it can also work in Europe on the GMS network but that European GMS network uses a different frequency than US-carriers' gms networks.
You can get a Sim from Verizon for the 8830 that will allow the phone (data I don't know about) to work overseas (Europe and Asia and others???). Also, I just got my phone unlocked and can use a sim card purchased in Europe for much cheaper rates from what I understand.
I don't know what services you have from Verizon but with a series of work discounts, rebates, whatever, the phone price was $99.00 US. But you do need to signup for a $30.00 data plan.
