one cell phone for the U.S. and B.A.

#1
Hi

I was thinking of getting the new blackberry pearl, I know they have it in BA as well. I have Sprint here in the US and of course they don't use SIM cards. Which is strange because I know the phone has one. Does anyone know how to get around this so I can use it in both places.

Thanks,

Greg

If your sprint blackberry is a world phone meaning it supports GSM and has a SIM then you can use it in Argentina or any country that supports GSM (most countries). However, if you use a USA SIM out side the USA you will be hit with expensive roaming charges. If you unlock your phone, meaning you can use a SIM card from any country or operator, you can get a local number thus avoiding roaming charges.
