| | Blackberry in Europe
Our company (U.S. Ski Team) is looking to purchase a number of Blackberry units to use exclusively in Europe. The primary usage area will be Italy, for a three-week event this February and for the Olympics next year.
We want to have both voice and data service, accessing our POP3 email server. I'm looking at both the 6230 and 7230. RIM's site indicates that only the 7230 will work in Italy. The most convenient service provider for us to use is probably TIM, and using prepaid cards would be easiest.
Can anyone share their similar experiences, look for potential problems we might encounter, etc. I'm especially concerned if using prepaid SIMs will work for both voice and data.
Thanks for your help.
