Default Hong Kong? T-Mobile 8700G

Please Login to Remove!

I'll be in Hong Kong for a week and wondering if my 8700G will work to receive and send - calls and email?

Does anyone have experience with this phone, T-M and the BB email service there?

I called T-Mobile and one rep said it would work, but wanted to be sure. It's $1.49 / min. for calls.

What other options would there be? Buy a local sim-card and put it in my 8700G?

Thanks for ideas.

Should be no problem if you have international roaming enabled. My cingular BB works perfectly in HKG.
