Darthloki, that is a good concern. We know how imporatant it is to have a good working device while you're outside the country. With the new software update with your cell phone, it would still be compatible to travel outside the country. As for if the device will always connect with the network outside of the country is beyond our control since we have to rely on the network in the other countries. I hope that this was helpful information.

I can understand the need to keep imporant capabilities on your device darthloki. We provide plans and access to use your phone while traveling internationally but can not guarantte if you're using another service that we don't support your phone will work. Since we don't support the software provided with your computer for use of your phone internationally, we can not guarantee your phone will work after our software update.
