I am heading to Afghanistan in a few months. My wife and I are looking to purchase either the Blackberry or Droid to use for communication while I am over there. The area that I am going to has minimal communication assets so we are trying to figure something out that we can use that will be fairly cost effective.
I have heard many things about either device. I hear that you can use BBM to talk back and forth. I also heard that you can use Skype on the Droid to talk, and it works pretty much like a regular phone call?
Does anyone have any experience using either of these devices over there or possibly know someone that has had experience.
Blackberry is going to be expensive cuz i was in Europe and i had no less than a 200$ phone bill and I didnt use it all that much but sometimes when i did use it i had a $800 bill. The droid i havent heard that much about it overseas, sorry bro. Good luck..
I wasn't actually planning to use the "Voice" portion of the phone. Primarily the Internet and BBM to talk to folks back home via FaceBook etc. I figured the voice portion would be stupic expensive. Thanks for the help.
