As I understand it, you may not be able to access the Internet on your OEM phone, but that's because the phone's internal settings may be different from what the local service provider needs. You may - and I say may - need to hunt around the 'Net, to get the setting for Internet access. Also, some of the features offered on the phone may not be enabled by all providers. But it should not be impossible to get your phone fully functional.
I want to buy a unlocked moblie phone (sonyericson w810) that is not offered buy my current carrier (T-Mobile). Some one told me that I will not be able to use the internet features and so on if I buy a oem phone not thru the carrier. Doess anybody know how this works. Thanks for any info offered.
I travel overseas, and would like to be able to switch sim cards rather then have two phones, to save money on the overseas calling. I do not want to pay the US rates for calling the US when in Asia.
