Can I use my cell phone in Europe?

I will be traveling to Europe for 3 weeks (Sept-Oct) and traveling to Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, France, and The Netherlands. I have service with Sprint here in the USA, and the Palm Pre cell phone. My girlfriend who is traveling with me has T-Mobile and the MyTouch2. Since I’m pretty sure we will not be able to use our phones in Europe, what are the best options for receiving and making calls/texts in Europe?
Should I rent a cell phone, buy a prepaid calling card, buy a SIM card for her phone?
Will we be able to connect to wifi with our cell phones in Europe?
