I would like to purchase a blackberry to use on a GSM network in a foreign country. Can anyone tell me what my cell phone provider needs to support in order to use blackberry for web and e-mail?

Your provider must offer a Blackberry Data plan, and you must have it activated on your account.

Hope this helps.

Default No alternative?

The provider does not have a Blackberry data plan but you can get Internet viaGPRS... will the Blackberry work with that or only with a data plan?

Blackberry will NOT have email or internet with a GPRS plan. You must have a BB data plan to be able to receive email or use the internet.
