Hi, am from he UK and am off to HK in april. Will my K850i work in HK, or will I have to buy a local sim card?

It'll work, but there's a few things to note.

1) You must enable roaming on your mobile price plan with your operator.

2) Unless you are using 3, it'll be very expensive. It'll be much cheaper to get a local pay as you go sim card.

The reason why 3 will be better is because they will be able to use their own network in HK and call charges are the same as in the UK! However, you'll still need to ring 3 to enable international roaming on your price plan.

Hope that helps.
To use a foreign simcard, my phone has to be unlocked right?
