I have a Samsung Mermerize through US Cellular. I am going to be traveling to Vietnam and Hong Kong soon, and was told the cell phone would not work there, but I could get emails and otherwise access data. I also had the impression I should get a special data plan so I would not be charged huge data fees, but when I called US Cellular, they said the phone will not work at all over there, for data or any other purpose. Is there any way I can still get and respond to emails on the Mesmerize over there? Will I be able to access data that is stored on the phone (sort of like a PDA)? It has all of my travel itineraries and other info on it. Or am I better off just leaving it at home? Thanks in advance for any advice.
