Got to protect my mobile..

I am somebody who keeps on losing something or the other thing every now and then. You won’t believe, I have lost around four mobile phones within a period of two years … Isn’t that pathetic? Hence, I stopped carrying mobile phones with me. But it had really become difficult for me … imagine how these gadgets have made... us their slaves! Finally, my brother, seeing my restleness bought me a mobile phone with some lost mobile tracking software installed in it. Earlier, I thought it is some dud thing. But when as usual I lost mobile again few days later, this software actually traced my mobile back easily. Now isn’t that great? I can lose my mobile all the time and get it back also … Yippee! If you want,...

I know that GSM is global, and I know that CDMA is mostly in the U.S. but are there other CDMA networks besides U.S.

Also, what is the best GSM carrier for Global? I know at&t says some stuff but I don't like them and I want to believe in T-Mobile, are they any good for global?

3G/Data in Europe


I was looking into buying a E63-2, but I realized that 3G does not work for this phone in Europe (only for the E63-3, which is $100 more).

Besides the iPhone, are there any other good phones that operate at the 3G frequency of Europe?

Cambodia calls **Need Advice

Hey, Newbie here.
Spent December in Cambodia working in an orphanage and will be going back in a few weeks. 25 cents to call the US in many internet places/cafes. Would like to use my CDMA Verizon Razr which I still love but know it does not work there even tho it did work in Thailand and Vietnam at $2.00 a minute! Thought of just buying a Trac phone or something than getting a SIM card in Cambodia, can I even do that and what would it cost?? What is my best bet on using a cell phone to make calls to the US from there. Thanks so much for the advice.

Phone for USA, Japan, and Korea

I'm in Korea 3-4X per year and have always rented a phone at the airport. I believe Korea is CDMA, so my AT&T quad band GSM does not work and thus I cannot even retain my phone # with my SIM.

My AT&T contract is up and I've determined that Verizon seems to be the best choice with a Blackberry 8830 which does support CDMA. The store salesman claims it will work in Korea and suggests their 30 day trial to confirm. That's not good enough for me. I want confirmation NOW so I don't get to Korea and have to go through the hassle of renting at the airport. Anyone know?

If it's true that the BB 8830 works in Korea, it sure would be nice if AT&T had the same or similar phone so I could avoid migrating!!!

I've also been told that Japan an...
