Mobile (cell) Phone for Europe & UK

I need to get a GSM phone for UK and France. I already have a great Treo but its not a GSM. Are prepaid GSM phones available in the USA? I’ll only need it for 15 days. If you have a great service provider here in the US that sells prepaid GSM I would like to hear from you.

Thank you in advance for your help and advice.

Best

There are several places in the USA that sell unlocked GSM phones over the Internet. I have purchased a phone and cards for UK, Spain and Morrocco from them. Unfortunately I am not at home and am on someone else’s computer, so I don’t have my bookmarks. If someone doesn’t respond with some names soon, I will when I get back on Monday. If I have a minute to search before then I will pass them on.

If you have a Treo and it’s not GSM, I guess you are with a CDMA carrier like Sprint or Verizon. Both have rental programs for overseas travel. If you’re going to go there frequently, I’d just buy an unlocked tri-band phone.
