    I was in Iraq all of 2005 and unless things have dramatically changed, your not going to be able to use any cell phone over there.

    StormDevil the dust wont be that bad except outside in the open. I knwo people that had other PDA devices and I had one both time. Iraq is alot more civilized then people make it seem.

    I wouldnt risk it. if its got dust problems here, its going to be 100x worse over there. my buddy was there all last year, and he was in camp victory, a pretty nice part. i cant speak about the cell phone deal, but he bought a new laptop to bring over and the thing has all sorts of problems from all the dust/dirt getting everywhere. (I MEAN EVERYWHERE) he was staying in an AC'd trailer and all too. Unless you have a really good way of sealing up that screen.. dont risk it.
