| | 8820 - Wifi w/no contract?
Please Login to Remove!
I know there have been previous threads like this, but I'd like to be as clear on it as I can before I dive in...
I'd like to buy an inexpensive 8820 (~$60 on eBay) for use on a trip to Europe. I want to be able to use WiFi hotspots, and buy a local SIM card for phone/text while traveling. If I get an 8820 and unlock it can I do all this? It's a quad-band GSM so should have no probs in Europe with a local carrier...
Also, is there a standalone GPS mapping app that I can install and use without using any cell network?
NOTE: I have no intention of signing up for an AT&T contract as their coverage where I live is bad (I use Verizon - but CDMA won't work over there).
Thanks for any help.
