    I will be spending a few months in Italy, and I'm wondering what's the cheapest plan for my BB Storm 2. I want data (for checking emails, Google Maps, etc) in addition to SMS and voice.

    If I get a local SIM card that allows for data as well as SMS/voice, what would be the monthly charge be like? I know TIM is a carrier for BBs in Europe, but I don't know what the costs are or if other carriers offer similar plans. Additionally, does an Italian SIM work in other EU countries? I plan on traveling around a bit, and I don't want to be out of service when I'm elsewhere.

    Alternatively, if I stay with VZW and use the global plan, I believe that's about $70/month for data and $0.99/min for all calls (local & int'l). I'd prefer a local number to give to friends and classmates over there so they don't have to pay extra to reach me. Also, does anyone know what the SMS rates are for this plan?
