Default Wanting to buy and use a blackberry in southamerica!! help!!

Please Login to Remove!


I am a treo 650 user, living in paraguay (southamerica). I use my treo for emails, pop, hotmail, gmail., also im clients (verichat) and some web surfing.

Also using VNC to connect to a server.

The question is the following,
I have been looking at the blackberries for a long time and I want to buy one (unlocked) to use it in paraguay (with a local gsm/edge) carrier. There are no bes or bwc carriers there. So I would like to know if I am going to be able to use it down there; for those thing I mentioned before.

Please let me know anybody since I am so eager to get one, but don't want to be getting something that doesn't work for me

You would need a local carrier who has a BB data plan. Otherwise, you will be paying through the nose for international data and roaming.
