Hi. I have a Verizon Wireless Droid X, and I am planning on working in Germany for 3 months. I can't use my phone over there (it isn't a world phone), and I'm wondering what my options are. I'd like to maintain access to the internet (I'm not sure if Germany has tons of free wifi hotspots, but if it magically does, that would be best) over there, so I can use things like google translate on the go.
Should I get something from a german carrier? or should I do a verizon overseas plan?
I will use skype for most of my calling needs. I need the phone for things like maps/gps, google translate, other pda like stuff, and important calls. if the texting is cheap, I might text internationally back to america.
