According to my Rogers,(I live in Canada) I cannot update or do anything to my cellphone for a year. However we do plan to travel more often and may in a few years, God willing, go to Europe. I have heard that roaming fees are high, so in this perspective, for those who were not able to pay full price (because they could not afford it at the time), have anyone of you unlocked your cellphones. I know that those who buy the cellphones direct and pay full price are more than likely to buy unlocked cellphones, so I do not need to hear from them.

i am even wonder you want to take the same sell phone to the Europe?Do you think it will be working? I am from Eruope and when I brought my sell phone here to USA I can throw it to the trash, beucase the power for plugging is different and not only that my cell phone after turning it on had no signal.So nobody cannot call me or send me a text message.I don't know where are you going, but I know in Englad they have som kinda cheap cards for calling.

It is s Sony Ericssson W810! so it should work. I will have to go to their site and find out about that. It is a quad phone. We plan to go to England and take a railway tour. It might not be for a couple of years though.

It is interesting, becuase I bring with me three phones, but not even one work here. But none of them was Ericson. One was Motorola, Phillips and the last LG.

you are right about this. I heard the same thing from my husband. he moved here from England many years ago and whenever he travels back there he doesn't bring anything that doesn't use battery, because he doesn't want the trouble of finding out the plugs. a cellphone should work long distance, but if you have to recharge it or something, that'll be a problem. I never have a cell, so I don't know for sure what to do about it

well i haven't done that yet and i hope i never do but i think just to be on the safe side i would also get a calling card just incase your phone doesn't work as well.but it sounds like you do have a good brand so it might not be a problem.

I was thinking of it when we go to Florida, because I heard the roaming fees are so high. At least that is what I figured when I looked on the Rogers website. Look i am not a gabber, but I am rather careful with my money. I might get a long distance calling card, that is what the man at the store recommended.
