Default Will my BB Pearl work in India?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm certain that because its a GSM network there, my BB will work (cel phone coverage), but does anyone know if my email function will work on my BB while i'm there? I'm on the Rogers network in Canada. Any feedback would be appreciated.

You'd have to follow up with Rogers to see if they have the capability for your email to work internationally.

I'm on Cingular(gsm) and have when I go back home to Canada the network that i change to is Rogers. My fiancee who is also on Cingular(8700c) arrived in India this afteroon and has been able to call and email me fine. I think you are fine with your GSM phone on Rogers.

Would hurt to call Rogers...plus if they have a international roaming package I'd add that to your account as well.

Hope this helps.

All you had to do is to check Network Coverage web link from the Rogers web site.
They conveniently offer to select a country and provide list of carriers having voice and data roaming agreements with Rogers.

You should look if at least one carrier in country you are planning to visit has data roaming agreement with Rogers.

For India, list of carriers with data roaming agreement so long it does not fit the screen. You should be fine with Rogers in India.
