    You can use the payg SIM *BUT BE SURE* to set your phone to GSM only in your mange connections or your phone bill will be about ten grand.

    Your payg SIM must have a data plan. Using BBM may or may not work... some do and some do not overseas if the recipient is back in the States.

    ok thanks!!! so when I get there and buy a simcard i just go to manage connections on my phone and make sure it is in gsm only. By doing this will it make my other line stop working? I dont want the american line to work because my bill would be 1000000s ha.
