    I was wondering if i could use wifi on my pre in other countries. An example would be if i traveled to England with my Pre. Even though i couldn't use my phone or data internet, could i use my Wifi on my pre in an area that has wifi connection over there?

    Your WiFi should still work - I just got back from Alaska and Canada, and WiFi wasn't a problem. It was just the EVDO that was the problem.

    I had International Roaming and Worldwide Internet, but you should still check with Sprint to see what they say.

    When I went to Singapore, wifi worked just fine but there was NO signal out there when it came to using the cell connection. I now use a Tour with the 40/month Blackberry Worldwide package from Sprint(unlimited data anywhere in the world), and that suited me just fine, since I can use Google Voice to make calls and send texts back to the US!

    I just got back from Vancouver and was able to use the wifi in the hotel and data roaming via cellular signal without problems; however, there is a large charge for the data roaming.

    Of course, that works if you are in a country with CDMA, assuming we are talking the Pre. I am in Dubai right now and there is no CDMA so I don't have to worry about roaming charges - I cannot connect no matter what.

    Wi-Fi still works fine if you can find and connect to it. Not so easy in Dubai.

    beret9987 - not to hijack the thread, I didn't think GV on the pre supported VOIP. How does this work?

    i used the wifi on my pre when i was in europe a couple of months ago. worked beautifully. i put the pre in airplane mode, so that it wouldn't search for a cell signal, then turned on wifi.
    My journey: PalmPilotPro->PalmPilotIIIx->Treo300->Treo600->Treo650->Treo755p->Pre->FrankenPre2

    wifi can be used everywhere if there is provided.
    it has nothing to do with the GPRS or 3G
