    New User and Need Assistance

    I just switched from a regular cell phone to a Droid. The one drawback to the phone, which hopefully can be overcome, is that I cannot make and receive calls when I am in Europe (primarily France).

    Are there any applications that I can download in order to make and receive phone calls while overseas? Otherwise, I am going to have to rent a GSM phone before my trip.

    Thanks.

    Welcome, Sonnysmamma! Glad you found us! This place is full of friendly folks and great information. So just look around and make yourself at home! You'll be amazed how much you can learn by reading the threads here on the forum! For example, here's one explaining the differences between the CDMA (like the Droid) and the GSM (used all over Europe.)

    And this one: Anyone Use Their Droid in Europe? Hope that helps you out!

    If you get stuck, just post a question in the appropriate area and someone will be along to help you out. Enjoy!
