    Hi everyone,

    I hope someone can help me. my BF is leaving for france for an extended period and we are trying to find out the best/cheapest way for us to call and text. he has the bold 9650 on verizon. i used to have a 9700 but am on android now but I never had any experience using my old BB abroad.

    does anyone have experience or advice on the cheapest way to go about this? we text constantly and don't want that to be interrupted for almost a year.

    I remember reading something about UMA being a good way to call when roaming internationally? but i don't remember much about this concept.

    thanks in advance

    The Bold 9650 should work perfectly in France (he'll even have 3G), all he'll need to do is get a SIM from a provider over there, and activate BIS, then you guys could chat over Whatsapp for free (since you have Android now)
