    I didn't look closely at them, but when I was researching the
    SprintPCS-in-Europe thing, some combo GSM/Satellite phones (Iridium)
    came up. It appears you only use the satellite mode when you're really
    out in the boonies or like the ocean or desert. Or a dead zone.

    As a sub-thread here, can you still receive email (e.g,
    [email protected]) on the phone (the IP-A790 or one of the
    other GSM rentals) while in Europe?

    There's a link there to the available phones for leasing ans the costs.

    I think it'll answer almost everyone's questions about international
    roaming.

    But you'd still have to call the dedicated International Roaming Team to
    activate it.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think you can not.
