I've disabled the APN in the TCP settings menu, but even after saving the changes, I'm still able to browse/use non-RIM apps without a problem while connected only to the mobile network (no wifi).
Is this because I'm still in the states? I would think it would have the same effect no matter where I am, but I can still browse and use Pandora, and would like to figure out a sure-fire way to disable data before I leave.
You are good to go. If any apps work now, they are using the blackberry.net APN, and therefore you would not be charged.
