I'm gathering information for a trip to France and England at the end of August. I have a GSM-only prepaid phone from a previous trip but this time I plan to use my Razr and my wife's Razr Maxx with European SIM cards. I don't know whether it's inherent to GSM technology or just a benefit of a denser tower network, but I've always had incredible battery life on GSM phones in Europe.
So, I'm wondering whether I can expect a miracle. Will my Razr's battery be transformed from not-really-adequate to outstanding when I turn off the CDMA radio? What can I expect if I use (very moderate, €€€€!) data?
Also, if anyone has good or bad experiences with various European and international carriers to share, I'm all ears.
Thanks in advance,
