sandals, how essential is it for you to be able to receive data in "real time"? If it is very important, then you need to get a blackberry data plan from a SP in Europe. The choice of SP would depend on your location and travel plans, but the service will be more expensive than your monthly service stateside.
Another option, and this is what I do when I travel, is to buy a local sim card for voice and text (if needed) and use your blackberry via wifi.
Use the following settings for data in Mobile Network Options:
Data Services: ON
While Roaming: OFF
Enjoy your summer in Europe.
