I just bought a Blackberry Curve. And found that I can not read

Does the Blackberry Data connection work in South Korea? Is there a Sim Card that Verizon provides when they sell the phone or do I need to buy a sim card in South Korea when I get there?

Yes it will work in Canada, well at least with VZW it will. Any of their phones will work regardless as long as you have the North America plan you'll be safe to talk without roaming charges.

So, can it operate (for both email and voice) in Korea and Japan like the Blackberry 8707 series?

To be able to use roaming in most of countries you don't have to use quad band gsm, please learn each country system for their mobile. For example: South Korea, etc.

The 8830 does have a camera, where does GSM Arena get their info from?

I think is wonderful to have a dual-technology phone. At the same time it makes sense for this "World phone" to support all 4 GSM bands due to the fact that CDMA cannot offer the roaming coverage GSM does.
