Another cell phone question

Sorry if I'm repeating other posts. I've searched the archives and I'm starting to understand but I have a question specific to my upcoming trip.

I'm traveling to Germany, Austria and the UK. If I buy this phone in the US can I use it in all my travel locations? I'm thinking I would need to buy a sim card for Germany and another for Austria (or can you roam pretty easily between the two places? I'm mostly staying in the Salzburg area while in Austria.) When I'm in the UK will their sim cards work in this phone or is the UK system different?

Here's the one I'm looking at, it's pretty cheap to buy online: Samsung GT-E1182L E1182 DUOS Unlocked Quad-Band Dual SIM GSM Phone with Dual SIM Standby Support

Phone should work fine in all three countries. You can purchase a separate SiM in each country or look for a multi- country SIM. I would recommend you check what's available domestically through Telestial.com. You might find a better deal on a phone/SIM combo or find a multi country SIM that will work economically for you.

Good luck.
