    Hello all,

    Long time I haven't posted here. Anyway, I have a bit of a situation I could use help with and figured I'd post here since it's the phone forum I'm most familiar with these days:

    I'm on AT&T, Samsung Focus. I'll be traveling to Italy for 11 days, which is long enough to leave me feeling uncomfortable without a cell phone.

    I could get a pay-as-you-go sort of thing there, but I'd much prefer to keep my trusty Focus (along with its address book and emails I need to read while I'm there, appointments, etc).

    Is there any way to bring my Focus, unlock it (or... something) and get a local provider (TIM, I'm guessing?) to stick their own SIM card into it? I've never unlocked a phone before so I'm a bit out of my element here.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would like to know the same info. I am traveling to Australia for two weeks soon. I have an HD7 on Tmo.

    Don't quote me here but I've heard that ATT will unlock phones for international use, but I'm not sure if that's true or if there's a charge.
