Default Using a blackberry wi-fi without a carrier

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I have an old blackberry 7290 and am looking to upgrade. I go overseas a lot and just swap the sim card out when I arrive in Asia. What I am looking for is a BB that is unlocked (easy enough to find) and I can switch to wi-fi and use in any public hotspot without being tied to a carrier in the US. A unit that has 3G would be preferable. I guess what I am looking for is similar to the Apple Touch but damn i love my keyboard.

any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Ryan

Welcome to BBF!

You should give the 8320 a spin. Should be perfect if you travel most often. There's a service from T-Mobile (not sure what it's called now) that would let you make calls over Wi-Fi and when you do that overseas, you don't get charged for IDD--as long as you're on UMA.

If you want a 3G BlackBerry, head on over to the BlackBerry Bold section on here to read more about it.
