BlackBerry Storm SIM questions

Hi,

 

From my understanding, Verizon will offer BlackBerry Storm as a GSM phone (Please correct me if I'm wrong).

 

Will it only works with a Verizon SIM? If I'm going to other countries, can I just slip in an appropriate SIM in a given country to avoid the steep international roaming fees charged?

 

Thanks

It will be exactly like the Verizon 8830 World Edition. You can add a Vodafone SIM card that can be obtained from Verizon. Why Vodafone? They are the largest shareholder in Verizon Wireless.

According to what I have read, it is possible to unlock it, so you would be able to use the SIM of your choice.
