Default 8830 in Scotland

Please Login to Remove!

Thought I was done with all the world traveling. We bought in FL and go there for long weekends during the winter. Sold my unlocked quad-band phone.

Now the guys has booked a golf trip to Scotland in July.

Will the 8830 work with no additional calls to Verizon when I leave or will I have to advise Verizon of my leaving the US and pay some exhorbirant rate for calling?

Any advice?

As long as you have the SIM card and are paying for the international plan you should be alright, but I would still call Verizon to verify.

i know on the sprint side you have to call and have it provisioned on the network here first. Give them a call and ask if they need to enable international roaming via GSM. Also, unless you have the device unlocked you will be restricted to Verizon's roaming partners (Vodafone)

Also, your voice calls will be more expensive -- whether it is exorbitant is a matter of opinion.
