Default T-Mobile 7100 in Costa Rica?

Anyone have any info on whether my TMO 7100 will work in Costa Rica? Will I have to get a world update before leaving?

If anyone has any info, please let me know as it's much appreciated.

Thanks

There is GSM coverage (1800) in Costa Rica but the local provider is in an agreement with AT&T Wireless (Cingular). It looks like TMo does not have a roaming agreement with them. I'd call TMO to see...

there is no Tmo roaming agreement in C.R.

According to smworld.com they don't have agreements with anyone.

My boss was there last summer. The only thing that worked was an old TDMA AT&T phone. No GSM roaming at all (I sent him with a few SIM cards and his BB).

Crap--Looks like I'm SOL as far as TMO goes. Thanks for all the replies.

Just means more time to enjoy the waves without feeling too guilty haha

I was in Costa Rica 6 months ago with my T-Mobile phone... no service. They have an independant GSM carrier with no roaming agreements with anyone from what I was told when I was there...

By the way, beautiful country! Make sure you try to see both coasts - completely different climate and things to do...
