    I'm travelling to Europe (England, Scotland, Netherlands, France) for a couple weeks, and would like to pick up a pre-paid SIM to access BIS services (I do NOT need voice or texting - data only). I will be in England first, so I'd like to pick up a SIM at the airport and add some kind of European roaming package for the rest of the trip.

    On T-Mobile UK's site, it looks like I can get the following package:
    - free pre-paid SIM
    - 30 day BlackBerry 'booster' (BIS service) - 5
    - 50MB 'euro travel booster' (50MB of data roaming) - 10

    Can anyone confirm that this setup will work? Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    I'd check the small print, Pre paid BIS services on Orange only work in the UK, so there is a chance T-Mobile is the same.

    Call rogers, ask them how much they charge for service in the UK. 50MB is very tiny.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    Rogers charges $50 CDN for 10MB of international data. 50MB is my usual monthly usage, so it will be fine for 2 weeks!
