(wordy) newbie has a Q 'bout travlin with T-mobile
Just ordered an unlocked 4band Nokia N81 with internet capabilities yesterday. I live in US.
This will be my backup phone and I don't want to pay too much for service and will also be my travel phone when I go on vacation.
I ordered a T-mobile pre-paid SIM.
I want to use the wireless web features in Europe on this phone with my T-mobile pre-paid SIM. The T-mobile reps were a little inconsistant in their answers, so I'm wondering if anybody has any knowledge or experience in using a domestic prepaid plan and temporarilly used it abroad for data plans.
T-mobile advertises the side-kick program, but it is written "domestic" email, text, internet, etc. Also, not sure if...

Unlocking Verizon LG phones?
Ideas for use in Norway & USA
I am going to Norway for 1 year.
I was thinking of buying a T-Mobile prepaid Motorola V195 for $30 and activate a domestic account, then asking T-Mobile to unlock the phone, going to Norway and getting a local prepaid SIM card to use there. The idea is to have 2 SIM cards at my disposal, depending on the use I need or desire.
Is this pie in the sky? Am I better off to just buy an unlocked phone from the start? Are phones less expensive in Europe? Are SIM cards interchangeable?
Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Is my 700wx from Verizon going with me to Deutschland?
I am attempting to figure out how I am going to use my phone in Germany while I am there for a few months to study.
My situation is this, where I will be staying, I will not have internet in my living area. I need a phone that can be used as a modem in Europe decently cheaply, if possible. I need a phone that let's me create, and edit word, and powerpoint documents. I need a phone that has the voice activated thing that reads a person their calendar entries, tasks, incoming phone calls etc.
Right now, I have it all. For better or worse, freeze or fail I love my treo 700wx with verizon.
Without the features above, I couldn't live. I had the blackberry world edition FIRST but the text messaging was like notepad on PC's, and...

The last couple of times I went over there I rented a phone from softbank and that ended up costing me. I feel I am going to pay either way so it might as well be with my phone. Unless you guys can point me in a better direction.
