Default Traveling to Honduras.. Will Data work on my 8700c?!?

Please Login to Remove!

I was just told by cingular that the data on my blackberry 8700c will not work in Honduras. Voice will - but no email/internet..

Can anyone confirm this? I tried researching online but i've gotten several answers.. I am leaving this saturday and bought this blackberry thinking it would work!

Anyone that can, please help!

I checked T-Mobile International Coverage and Honduras didn't have a data network. Further international coverage, here is a link.

I read on one site something about CDMA coverage there.. I wonder if my Verizon Treo would work for text messages and voice..?

I cant believe i bought this blackberry thinking it would work.. I bought it after talking with a cingular rep for about half an hour. He was telling me all about the unlimited blackberry data plan - but not once did he actually check to make sure DATA would work!!

Tama, that's not exactly surprising. It's not like the Verizon reps give a crap all the time. Hell, I had one tell me I didn't need a text messaging plan (I was switching from a Q to the 8703) because the unlimited data on the BB was different than the Q and that text messaging was included. That's a line of crap and I knew it, so I asked them about it and they insisted. I called 611 when I got home and had them add the text plan to my account. You just can't trust them sometimes. What happens if I go and spend a month text messaging...using like 5-7 hundred messages. I owe 100's of dollars because some lazy rep didn't want to look it up or go through the trouble to help. That's some BS.

In most parts of the world, GSM is the ticket, especially in Europe, China and Australia. In very few, CDMA is it. I know you can get Verizon International in Mexico and parts of the Caribbean. I guess Central America is in their domain as well.

There just may not be a data network in place yet.
