I'll be switching Cell Phone services and getting a new PDA type phone, Motorola Q, or Blackberry or something.
Since I plan to visit Panama, maybe spend some time down there and retire there in a few years I'm wondering if there is an inexpensive way to use the same Cell Phone in both Panama and the USA (FL) for both voice & data.
I was told by Verizon and Sprint that I should talk to Cingular or T-Mobil because their phones are GSM phones and V & S are not and therefore can not be made to work in Panama.
Still Cingular is talking $1.99 a minute or $2.29 a minute with or without their International Roaming package.
T-Mobil is suggesting a T-Mobile supported phone and get a prepaid account. They said after 90 days of service I'll be eligible for SIM unlock code. Not sure what impact this would have on Internet / Email functionality.
Also I own ACT! 2007 and would want to run it on the PDA/Blackberry as well as MS Office and GPS Navigation.
Appreciate comments/advice/guidance on this whole ball of wax.
