Default 8800 in Brazil

If I unlock my AT&T 8800, am I able to use it in Brazil with a local carrier SIM card?

Yes.

Utilizing the search function would have revealed that.

What is it with some of the people on this forum completely jumping on new posters when they ask a question that may have been answered elsewhere? I understand the importance of searching, but it took me a little while to get a hang of the site and become familiar enough with it to search comfortably and successfully.

Would it be possible for people to politely inform new posters about the search function and how to use it rather than blast back a snotty remark? Wouldn't that foster more of a "welcoming" first impression and keep people coming back to this site? Seems like the more people we have, the more information we have to share with each other. Just curious....

Of course, if someone with 50 posts needs a rude response because they should have searched, I'm all for that!

If you had searched you would've found that others had the same opinion as you

It would take me a long time to fully answer your question, but here's the gist of it: When people don't search, and consequently post a duplicate question, it makes it all the more the difficult for future users who DO search first to find an answer because there are too many threads. This in turn leads to MORE duplicate posts.

Also, if you noticed, I did answer the question.

I did see that you answered it. And I meant no disrespect.
