    Yes you can and you would be able to call the US from it on a pre-paid phone just by entering the US country code and the phone number

    The RAZR and SLVR L7 should have all the bands you need 850/900/1800/1900 for use in both the US and Europe.

    The SLVR L6 comes in 2 flavers 850/1800/1900, and 900/1800/1900. One of these phones MAY work for you. If you go with one of these do your research to make sure the phone you get will work where you need it. But I would just get a RAZR or L7 if these are your only choices.

    You could also just get a cheap unlocked 900/1800 phone for use while in Europe. Then sell it on ebay when your done and get some money back.

    Whatever phone you decide on, a prepaid SIM in Europe will work the best. As far as caling back to the US, be sure to check the rates with the prepaid SIM plan. You might find it cheaper to get a prepaid international long distance card. Just use the calling card on your cell phone to call back to the US.
