Wireless Networks DenmarkHiya!
I will be travelling to Denmark, but my mobile doesn't have overseas coverage so I want to activate my phone on prepaid while I am there. I have an iPhone 4 (uses a micro SIM) using the Telus network (which is HSPA) in Canada. When roaming in the US, my phone uses the AT&T network.
Which network is best for me to use in Denmark? Which supports HSPA? And which offers prepaid micro SIMS?

1Please note that I forgot to mention I need data! This is a work trip so clients will be emailing me often. I also need mobile service to communicate with my coworkers attending from Israel.

Welcome to TT!
You are more likely to find good answers to your question if you make it in the Scandinavia & the Nordics branch as that's the branch that covers Denmark and, therefore, where you are more likely to find TT experts in that country.

First you should be aware that using HSPA in one country doesn't necessarily mean that your phone can use HSPA in another country. By looking at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AT%26T_Mobility#Radio_Frequency_Summary you can see that AT&T is running HSPA on 850 MHz and 1900 MHz. In comparison the HSPA networks in Denmark runs on 2100 MHz and in some cases also on 900 MHz. Lucklily for you, according to http://www.gsmarena.com/apple_iphone_4-3275.php and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPhone_4#Connectivity the iPhone 4 seems to only exist in one version supporting HSPA which covers all relevant bands. :-) Many other phones are "regionalised" in a way that they only covers the local frequency bands.
With respect to the Danish network operators dealing with foreign travellers I found a page that seems to cover that subject: http://www.bredbaandsmatch.dk/english/mobile-phones/
Regarding your need for a micro SIM that is also a common need in Denmark - I expect all operators to have a solution by now, just remember to mention it when buying a package. If not, it is actually possible to cut down a SIM to micro SIM by yourself.
