I've been a lurker at this forum ever since I bought my D2G. Some great information here. I know lots of people love it. I'm in a love / hate relationship. I like how it does so much more than my BB.. but, at times, I like my BB's simplicity and most importantly, the BB's responsiveness. It seems my D2G is sluggish at times, and extremely sluggish when its plugged into a USB cable.. as in almost unusable.
OK, a little off the subject there. I'm traveling overseas next week. And unfortunately, VZW's data plan overseas will allow me to have my phone on for about 3 hours before I use up my pro rated 70MB. I use to love the unlimited data plan, but this is pretty much worthless with a D2G. So, after reading threads here, I called verizon and got my code to unlock my phone which will allow me to buy a sim card in Europe to use for the week (UK and France). While speaking to a friend, he told me 'good luck getting out your sim card.' I laughed and thought how hard could it be. Well, after 2 hours of trying and searching, I can't figure out how to get this thing out for the life of me. Does anyone have any tips on how to get it out of a D2G? Why do they make it so impossible?
Also, I've read in one thread that you need to put the unlock code in before you leave the US. Verizon told me you can't put it in until you insert the new card and never mentioned anything about it having to be done in the US. Any experiences on that?
