My husband is in Afghanistan and we are having major issues with our Verizon service. He has been over there since 2010 coming home every three months. Verizon has done away with the data plans that were once available so my husband purchased a local data sim card and we can't get that to work either. The place that my husband bought it from is saying that the data plans they have don't work with Blackberry phones. Does anyone have any experience with this? We are both very frustrated. The only reason we went with Blackberrys is so we could use BBM and because Verizon actually had a global data plan in Afghanistan and now that isn't the case. I am in dire need of some assistance. Thanks

He will need a blackberry data plan active on the SIM card he is using. If the current local provider does not offer blackberry services it may be worth looking at other local providers.
