My current phone is a 8530 Curve that is supported by Verizon. I am traveling to Greece next month and I know that it does not have international capabilities
I have a 9700 from my old job that was hooked up to ATT but no longer has a service provider attached to it. I noticed that it does have a SIM Card and I have heard of getting a sim card overseas for phones (but have never done it).
Will I be able to use my old phone in Greece by just getting a sim card?
Will I be able to get internet use, text, gmail, Google, etc without a carrier but with a SIM card?
I have the option to rent a phone from Verizon that can be used internationally at extra charge but the phone calls are $2/min and text 50 cents each. I'll go broke with that!! I will get internet use though unlimited.
Anyone have experience with a 9700 situation that I'm looking for? I love my 9700...wish it worked with Verizon... my new carrier.
Thanks in advance
