    I have a friend that will be traveling to Costa Rica very soon, and needs an unlocked phone. Will she be able to use my 822?

    She says it will be on a service provider called Kolbi, used right outside of San Jose in a town called Escazu..


    Anyone?

    I found this.

    If you're from the USA and want to purchase a prepaid Subscriber Identity Module (SIM card) from a Costa Rican cellular provider, you need an UNLOCKED phone from AT&T or T-Mobile. If your phone is uses CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) such as Sprint, Verizon or MetroPCS, then your phone does not use a SIM card and will NOT accept a pre-paid SIM card from a Costa Rican cellular provider.
