Most people just get a sims card where they are traveling and put it in.
The 8830 has a SIM card holder in it. The SIM card slot on Sprint's 8830 is unlocked. You can use either the Sprint SIM card that was in your 8830 box or pick up a local one in Europe.
Be careful if you pick up a local SIM card that it has Blackberry service on it else you'll get voice only.
Sprint charges $1.29/min in most of Europe for voice. If you have their international Blackberry plan, data usage is unlimited.
Call Sprint before leaving to Europe if you plan to use the Sprint SIM card to ensure that they properly activated it.
