I have a blackberry 8830 Worldphone and Verizon service. I was told by VZ today that i do not need a sim card. All i need to do is dial *228 to update my software, and I;m good. No unlocking or anything.
I also had to buy an International Data plan so i could get unlimited internet and emails, for $26 for my 12 days down there. Plus they charge $1.99 a minute for calls in and out, plus 50 cents per outgoing text and 5 cents per incoming text.
Anybody can confirm this - especially the lack of need for a sim card?
