lots of people on extended stays or who travel regularly do this.
Yes, I've heard this is quite common for extended stays- I've also heard that sometimes a carrier can be sympathetic and unlock the phone for you- or you can go to the dark net and pay something like $50 to email your code and get an unlock key.
How would the data part of the BlackBerry work with a foreign SIM card? Not at all or ok?
