I need to get some Blackberry phone for international travel. That said, I need phone model which:
1. I can insert GSM SIM card from international mobile provider
2. Can be unlocked (obviously)
3. Preferable quad band, but tri band 850(or 900)/1800/1900 will work too
4. Is reliable
5. Can work with usual GPRS/EDGE data (does not require BIS!!!)
6. Push mail is not important when I travel, what is important - to have at least some internet connection. Many mobile providers in different countries support regular GPRS/EDGE (example in eastern europe: w w w .kyivstar.net/en/personal/contract/services/edge or w w w .mts.com.ua/eng/connect_edge.php etc.) but really mobile providers which give the benefit of BIS are very very very extremely rare
Any ideas? Suggestions? Old, non fancy looking model is well enough for me!
At this moment I see the only candidate is Blackberry Tour, though, I am not sure if it will work with overseas GPRS/EDGE -- but *without BIS* ? Will it? I heard that probably Blackberry Web browser will not work, but Mini Opera and everything else will? Is it true?
