    Hello fellow blackberry-users,

    I will go to Europe in Summer '12 for exactly one month and I'm in the States with ATT on my bold 9900.

    I know theres international data options but as ill be on a roadtrip with my girlfriend ill need like one GB of data.

    I have a german prepaid sim with 1&1 with Interner for my smartphone.
    Can I use that card in my BB and have BlackBerry Messenger activated for usage? Is there any tricks?

    Thanks a lot

    Hey,
    As I kno 1&1 is not offering any BIS plan. But Vodafone Germany has a prepaid offer with BIS included. Go to a Vodafone Shop in Germany and ask for prepaid card and BlackBerry option and they will give it to you!

    Have a nice time in our country!

    It depends what part of germany. Berlin is cool but sachsen anhalt gives you an uneasy chill with a bit feeling of deppression. Maybe because of the leftover stalinist buildings

    Have a BIS plan from your carrier.
    Close data services (so that you dont get a shocking bill )
    Connect to a wifi and use BBM
