SIM phone cards for Europe - can I use my Cdn BlackBerry?

Jump to last reply

We are travelling for 2.5 weeks in Scandinavia and Germany this June, and were wondering if I could just get a pay as you go SIM card for my BlackBerry (I already have a travel kit for plugging in the recharger, and we often use the phone for word games with the kids, directions, looking up info, etc.,) However, we know almost nothing about cell phones - this BlackBerry is our first mobile in a v. long time!

(b) if we'd be able to use data services as well (or if it's so expensive that we would be best to stick with phone only)

We are staying at a hotel the night before our cruise, so we'd have time to order something now and have the hotel hold onto it.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts
