Usually when traveling to other countries, your phone will need to be updated by dialing *228 once you have reached the country that desire. If you do not have a global plan that covers roaming charges, you may have some charges on your account (generally speaking). Be sure that you call into customer service at 1-800-922-0204 to get the full details on updating your device for your overseas trip.

That may be true, but if you want your phone to function internationally it needs to have GSM capability.  Almost all the rest of the world (and AT&T) are on GSM systems.  (although the US GSM frequencies are different than almost all other countries GSM frequencies).  And...to answer you question, no The Palm Pre Plus is NOT GSM capable.  On top of that, there's the issue of whether or not a GSM phone can ahve the SIM card swapped out.  You need to be unlocked from the carrier and then need to either enable international roaming or swap out the SIM card for something that's going to give you coverage in the country youre travelling to.  DAta must be WAY expensive.  Even voiec gets pricey fast depending on the country.
