International travel and cell phone?

I have a blackberry curve 8330 and will be traveling to Australia/New Zealand next year.   Will my phone work overseas, will texting work overseas?

 

If not, what do I need to do in order to be able to at least text from overseas?

 

Thanks,

The 8330 Curve will not operate on cellular systems overseas.  The only Blackberry devices that will do as such are the Tour, Storm, and Storm2.
