    taiwan uses both gsm and cdma.

    the majority of the coastline has 900/1800MHz coverage.

    should work fine. but the cheapest plan they have is like a 30 dollar contract for 29 minutes. but they give you free incoming. so what we did was call whoever we needed to call and hang up then they would call back. we went into one of the major service providers so you may be able to bargain hunt. good luck

    what if i have a bb curve that's locked to at&t? then it probably will not take asian sim cards right?

    nope, it wont. gotta either unlock it (no idea how to do that on a bb) or you can call at&t and tell them you'll pay for international roaming.
