  • Blackberry – using abroad
  • Gooner

    on a recent trip i was unable to use my blackberry pearl 8120
    it worked fine in america and quickly found a signal however in costa rica it could not find a signal and i could not use it even though it has international roaming
    the others on the trip (americans, canadians, danish) could not get their phones to work either
    i believe it is a quad band phone so is there something i should have done in the phones memory to get it to work?


    Might be a CDMA network in Costa Rica rather than GPRS


    I don’t think there’s any 3G network in Costa Rica & the 2G uses TDMA
    all strictly controlled by the government – last I heard you needed to be ‘of the right character’ [whatever that means] to get a mobile
