international calling with SIM card on the 8300 World Edition

Hello,

I have recently purchased a used 8300 World Edition from a store in Washington.  I was wondering if I could take this phone with me overseas and put a sim card in it and start making calls.  How do I know if the phone is unlocked or not?  Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Russell

yes you can use any sim card and use the device as a regular GSM mobile phone. But you won't be able to do data unless the local carrier does BIS.
