I have the 8830 and like it, I have heard from others that the World Phone aspect is expensive and you might be better off renting a International Phone, when you travel.

i think all phones have to be unlocked by your carrier if you request it. So when you go to another country, you can pick up a SIM card (if u'r on GSM) from a provider in that country.

I think you need to get the sim card from Verizon.

A) The 8830 does NOT have the required frequency support to work on GSM in North America. It only supports the frequencies used in the other parts of the world. So you can't use this phone on AT&T or T-Mobile or any other North American GSM providers.

B) Verizon will furnish a Global SIM on request that will bill your current Verizon phone number for any calls you make outside the US. Normally at a rate of $2-$6 a minute. Data will be charged at from 2 - 4 cents per kb. But your regular phone number will work as will all of your Blackberry data and e-mail.

C) You can get your 8830 unlocked to use any companies SIM card outside of North America. Typically the cost per call will be much less. From 40 cents to maybe $1.50 a minute. Typically these SIMS have no data support or any support for the BlackBerry network. So no e-mail or Internet support. There are some vendors for the 8830 who already have unlocked this Blackberry model. Their users do not have to do anything but put a different SIM into the phone from a different carrier outside of North America. I don't remember off the top of my head who does this. It might be Sprint and Telus.
