Default French Blackberry fans to US

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

i'm a french user of blackberry and I love this phone.

the thing is I have to travel to the US for a week to work and I can't find the way to be able to use my Blackberry services like BBM to keep in touch with my friends without paying roaming services.

I have called every US operators and they all told me that I can't use my own Blackberry on the US I need to buy the operator Blackerry.

I suppose that all this is a marketing speach and I know that there is a solution.

I have A Blackberry Torch 9800 SIM GSM version (not the CDMA)

Someone can help ?

There are no pre-paid BlackBerry data plans offered by any of the major U.S. carriers. You can get pre-paid for MetroPCS but you need to buy their device. Otherwise you'll need to see if Orange offers some kind of international roaming plan. It will still be expensive, but not as bad as just roaming without it.
