Default Using PAYG UK SIM on US Blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I'm a US Verizon customer with an unlocked Bold 9650 and I'll be travelling to the UK this spring for about 10 days and would prefer to use a local SIM card rather than roam internationally.

Orange in the UK offers pay as you go Blackberry service for 5 GBP / mo. extra however, will I have to first de-register my Blackberry device with Verizon before being able to use Orange UK?

Ye make sure you do it, because Verizon will charge you for international roaming.

Not if there is a foreign SIM card in there they won't. Please read before posting.
