I currently live in Canada and I'm heading over to Portugal this summer. The problem is that the phones in North America mostly use CDMA. The only exception to this is Rogers Wireless which uses GSM so in theory it will work in Europe.
All I need is email and maybe text messaging but there is no need for the phone portion
Will it work without any tinkering? or do I need to unlock it?
I'm aware that My bell Mobility won't work but Since my entire family is big travelers and need a GSM phone about 1-2 times a year, i thought it would be cheaper to buy a Rogers Wireless Blackberry and use that in europe.
From what you said though, it sounds like it would work...
