Default Travel to the Middle East

Please Login to Remove!

One of my users, with a BB7750, is going on vacation to the middle east. Isreal, Egypt, etc. Can he recharge the unit while there? If so, how? I think they use different voltage.

Thanks

Now that I think about it I believe the user has a bigger problem. GSM. His current blackberry is CDMA and, if I'm not mistaken, that part of the world is GSM.

Hmm.........

The other option is rental. Cellhire rents Blackberries, but they are not cheap, $125 a week, unlimited data.
