(wordy) newbie has a Q 'bout travlin with T-mobile

by Hidalgo    Dec 2, 2008, 2:07 PM

Hello. I'm brand new to phone scoop & brand new to 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 I have to pay even for days the phone is not in use with sidekick. T-mobile. Also, there is a 20MB data plan that looks like prepaid, but I'm not sure if that is usable overseas or not.

Thanks for your responses.
