    Will my Z30 100-5 work in Paris & Rome? Still several months away, but trying to get prepared.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Yes, on 3G (both places) wherever there is a 2100 MHz network--which should be most places as that's Europe's primary UMTS band. Maybe LTE too in Paris (on band 7--will depend on availability of this network around you,) but no LTE in Italy.

    Also, check with your carrier and let them know the time frame your going to be in Europe. They can change your plan so you won't get hit with high roaming charges while away.

    I would also look at how much local service would cost. Generally speaking, service in Europe is cheaper. IDK specifically about Italy and France though.

    The downside of getting a local SIM would be that you would lose your US number (if you are unable to set up call forwarding) for calls, and texts.
