Default Going to China, need some advice regarding a phone option

Please Login to Remove!

Will be in Beijing, Hong Kong, Xian and probably some other more rural areas. I currently have a verizon 8703e however i know that CHINA is GSM. So i was thinking of going to Cingular and just getting a cheaper phone so I could use it there, but I'm not sure exactly how I should go this thing, maybe someone could offer some advice.

So why does your model say you have an 8300?

Anyway, your best bet is actually to get a cheap unlocked handset and just get a prepaid SIM from China Mobile when you get there.
