Well, your phone does GSM850, GSM900, GSM1800, GSM1900, UMTS900, & UMTS2100. I would say that Yes, there is a very good chance it would work in Taiwan.

Yes, it will work no problems, just either set up roaming with your mobile provider before you go or pop a local taiwanese prepay sim card.

There are number of carriers over there all using GSM 900/1800 or UMTS 2100

I would pick up a local SIM card while you're over there, unless you want to come back to a thousand plus dollar bill.
