    Has anyone done this?

    Since the tour now comes with a sim card version, are we able to unlock and buy sim cards out there? Is this true? Have you done it?

    Can you give me some simple steps? Also, where did you buy the cards in France/Italy?

    Was it worth it?

    I think the difficulty you're going to have with that is you would need to have an international SIM with BlackBerry services... and I'm not sure how you'd do that.

    I know if you use the Sprint SIM you can add the international BlackBerry package and keep your data services abroad wherever the network supports it. The downside is you pay the international roaming fees which are ridiculous.

    Just pay Sprint an extra $40/month and you get unlimited internet overseas. No other carrier even comes close to touching that price.
