Default O2 or 8830 Verizon data in British Virgin Islands?

Please Login to Remove!

One of our attorneys is going to the British Virgin Islands. I usually rent units from Roadpost, but neither they or Cellhire list the BVI as having data. I know Roadpost's units use O2. Does anyone know if Blackberry data will work on an O2 unit?

It looks like a Verizon 8830 would work with SIM card, but would like to verify. She currently is with Sprint, but has an 8703, and they want $500 for the 8830. Her contract ends in January.

I'd appreciate any thoughts.

BlackBerry 8830 should work in the British Virgin Islands but I don't see Verizon as a roaming partner. Sprint does have some roaming partners in the BVI.
