- The SIM card inserted into the Blackbery is capable to do GPRS/EDGE data
- The (personal) email provider provides POP3 / IMAP
So far I know it will be lower case gprs showed up on the device, however I am not sure whether or not setting up personal email accounts under POP3 / IMAP protocol will work?
I just spent a month in Europe with my 8700c.. I use Cingular.
I signed up for the unlimited International data plan, and had my POP3 and Corp email without any problems. I used my browser everywhere as well without problem.. for $20 for a month this was very nice..
I intended to try one of the dual sim cards, but the BB didn't support it..
I ended up just using the Cingular voice plan calls.. spent about $200 for phone usage for the month..
