Is Vodafone only Carrier in UK (London)?

I have the Storm and I am going to London for a year of school. Is Vodafone the only carrier that supports data and phone with the Storm?


I assume I can just get the Vodafone SIM Card and put it in the Storm for service in the UK. This is a Verizon Storm.


Thanks for any advise on activating in the UK.

Hi sbsmith, from what I understand, if your Verizon Storm has been unlocked, you can connect it to any carrier that has BlackBerry support, including Orange UK, TMobile UK, etc., as well as Vodafone UK.


Note though, make sure that you have checked with Verizon before you leave and tell them exactly what you are doing as they may need to release your phone's PIN from their network.  Otherwise you might have problems activating your PIN over in the UK on whatever carrier you select.
