I'm hoping someone can clear this up for me since I've received conflicting information.
I currently live in Canada but I am moving to Portugal soon, and I am about to purchase a Curve 8900 but unlocked so I can use it in both countries.
Does anyone know if there will be any problems in terms of data/internet/email functionality once I get to Portugal and sign on with a Portuguese wireless provider?
I don't know much about this myself but I was told that unlocking the phone means voice and text will be fine, but it can disrupt the data functions. But so long as the provider in Portugal also carries the 8900 there shouldn't be a problem since they would be able to "reprogram" it.
However the 8900 is not available in Portugal at the moment (although the 9000 is). Will I therefore have problems with the data functions? And does anyone know if it will be released in Portugal (it was recently released in Spain)?
